Nature conservation

Crabbet Park

This area of grassland, flood pond and woodland supports an interesting range of habitats and a surprising diversity of wildlife, despite being a small narrow site, sandwiched between housing and the M23.

Plants
  • Horse chestnut trees
  • Meadowsweet
  • Great willowherb
  • Gorse
  • Grey willow
  • Knapweed
  • Heather
  • Birds-foot-trefoil
  • Red clover

Management of this site includes mowing the central areas of grassland on a two-year cycle and thinning the trees in the flood meadow to maintain an open grassland habitat.
