Nature Conservation and Biodiversity

Oadby and Wigston Borough Council look after a small number of natural green spaces to preserve the character of the countryside and to improve biodiversity through sensitive management. The largest area in the borough managed to benefit wildlife is Brocks Hill Country Park:

The other natural greenspaces owned by the Council are: Flude's Lane in Oadby, Clifton Bridge and Pochin's Bridge in South Wigston.

Pochin's Bridge is a mix of young woodland and grassland adjacent to the Grand Union Canal and new housing in South Wigston. Clifton Bridge is a small piece of grassland and scrub adjacent to the canal south of Kilby Bridge.

Fludes Lane is an urban woodland, leading from Oadby to footpaths towards Great Stretton and Stoughton. For more information about Fludes Lane, please visit: Fludes Lane Woodland
