Serving the people of Long Ashton & Leigh Woods

Peel Park

Since 2017 areas above the football pitches in Peel Park have been left un-mown, and gradually, flower and grass species have increased whilst crickets, grasshoppers, bees and butterflies have returned to feed and breed in these patches of long grass. Excitingly, a pyramidal orchid burst into bloom here this summer, and we hope others will follow suit next year.

In spring 2022, a strip of grass along the southern end will be replanted with species-rich grassland, and within a year or two, we should all enjoy seeing a wealth of plants and pollinators enjoying this new habitat. And there are other projects in the pipeline too.
