About

Open at all times

This 15 acre reserve consists of 1.5 miles of the former Maldon-Woodham Ferrers railway line, most of it on embankment. The northern 250m of the embankment has been isolated by the Maldon southern link road. A meadow with a large pond was added to it later.

The reserve is well known for its butterflies so a visit during the spring you will be rewarded with an abundance of fluttering species.  Over 28 different types have been recorded.
