Located between Mansfield and Bolsover, this picturesque woodland is rapidly developing into one of the most attractive wildlife sites in the region
With its mixture of mature broadleaf woodland, newly planted trees, large open meadows and a scenic wetland valley, Shirebrook Wood offers something for everybody.
This reclaimed colliery site provides home to a variety of wildlife including songbirds, small mammals and plenty of butterflies. On a warm summer’s day you may even be lucky enough to spot the Dingy Skipper butterfly as you explore the wood!
Climb towards the top of the site for spectacular views over open countryside and marvel at the natural landscape around you. Well-maintained surfaced tracks create a good range of circular routes for you to follow.
The Millennium hedge runs through Shirebrook, this was planted to celebrate the millennium and runs along the border between Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
