Weybourne Nature Area
This small site at the southern end of the Valley gives an indication of the once extensive marshy grasslands that dominated the ancient Valley’s landscape. An old pond, recently restored, is the centrepiece of the site. It is owned and managed by Waverley Borough Council.
Ditches and small ponds cross the marshy grassland supporting populations of Frogs and Grass Snakes.
Plants to be found include:
- Meadow Orchid
- Yellow Flag
- Meadow Sweet
Patches of Bramble and scrub support many small birds such as:
- Willow Warblers
Look carefully and you may see Roe Deer in the more secluded areas.
The site is open to the public with a boardwalk giving access to the pond.
The main access to the site is from Weybourne Road, adjacent to Cannons Health Club
