Burbage Common and woods

Stewardship scheme

Much of Burbage Common and Woods is managed under an 'Environmental Stewardship Scheme' after a successful bid for funding from Natural England. The scheme encourages the managing of sites to help conserve and improve their wildlife value.

The main part of the common will continue to be managed as a wildflower meadow. This means allowing the grasses and wildflowers to grow during the summer months to provide a habitat for insects, birds and small mammals. These flowers are then allowed to go to seed before cutting in late summer.
