From Sinfin it's great to be able to walk into the Sinfin Moor Park and have direct access to the Local Nature Reserve and countryside beyond. Sinfin Moor Park and Local Nature Reserve is one of the best kept secrets in Sinfin (maybe in Derby!) – green space with a variety of natural features, including meadows, ponds and woodland. The Friends of the Park and Nature Reserve really enjoy being out there but we want others to discover this area – we never cease to be amazed at the number of people who say they have never visited it before.
If you go on to Sinfin Moor Park (down Sinfin Lane past the side of Redwood Primary School and turn left; it is often referred to as Redwood Park), then walk beyond the football fields, you will be on part of the Nature Reserve, where you will find ponds and meadows. Many of these ponds were dug by hand during projects organised by the Friends group, others were dug in the early part of 2011 by digger, all with the intention of going some way towards restoring the land to its former wetland habitat. Other parts of the Nature Reserve can be accessed on the right hand side of the Lane, as you walk away from Sinfin, where you will find more ponds, meadow, scrub and woodland habitats.
The Friends of Sinfin Moor Park Local Nature reserve hope you will use this website to discover more about the lovely countryside area that borders Sinfin, on the southern edge of the City, and that you will not only visit the website but come and visit the site of the Local Nature Reserve itself. We have a range of activies, events and facilities for everyone. We look forward to seeing you.
