Ivel Springs is a large Nature Reserve in Baldock. The springs, which are the source of the River Ivel, provide a diverse area for wildlife including woodland, wetland and pasture. The site was used as a household rubbish dump until the 1950s when it reverted to rough woodland. Now it is carefully managed to keep a mixed habitat and encourage wildlife to flourish.
Ivel Springs Enhancement
Enhancement works were recently undertaken to improve the flow of water through the site and encourage wildlife with the development of new ponds and the clearance of old water courses to remove silt. At the same time the footpaths have been resurfaced including improved access on to the springs. The benefits of the completed work will be evident for many years to come.
