All Paths Lead To Ufton Fields

Families with pushchairs and wheelchair users will soon be able to get round a Warwickshire beauty spot thanks to a grant to improve the paths.

Work to improve the access to Ufton Fields will begin later this year.

The reserve, which is managed by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, was awarded a £33,000 grant from Biffaward.

The multi-million pound fund was set up by Biffa Waste Services using its credits from the landfill tax.

The remaining 10 per cent of the money for the work has been donated by Warwickshire County Council.

Ufton Fields, between Leamington and Southam, is designated as a Local Nature Reserve and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

There are pools, pine woodland and natural meadows.

The new footpath will provide a circular route for everyone to use, with bird hides overlooking two of the pools.

Reserves officer Fiona Hann said:

“The new footpath will make Ufton Fields easily accessible to all members of the public, allowing everyone to fully appreciate this beautifully diverse site.”

A leaflet highlighting the reserve’s history and wildlife, along with a map for walkers to follow, is also to be produced.

Anyone who wants to find out more about the reserve or who would like to help with voluntary work for the trust should call Fiona on 024 7630 8979.
