About Aldermoors Nature Reserve

Aldermoors Local Nature Reserve covers 8 hectares. The name 'Aldermoors' derives from the alder trees that populate this ancient woodland, situated within a shallow valley in Woodley. 

The site links up with Ashenbury Park, with a pedestrian route to the Thames and it's section of the National Trail Network. Visit the National Trail Network website for more details.

Wildlife

The woodland also comprises ash, hawthorn and willow trees. Aldermoors is a good example of the woodland management technique of coppicing, which has encouraged the growth of ground flora. During springtime, the woodland floor bursts out with wild flowers including bluebells, marsh marigolds, primroses and wood anemones.
