Burymead Springs

Nature Reserve

Burymead Springs is a site of around 2.5 hectares (6.2 acres) on the northern edge of Hitchin, owned by us and managed by us in partnership with CMS. It is designated as Green Belt land, and lies within a larger Local Wildlife Site, Cadwell Marsh and Burymead Springs.

Burymead Springs is part of an ancient riverside meadow which stretches along the rivers Purwell and Hiz through Hitchin and encompasses three other sites: Purwell Meadows, Walsworth Common and Cadwell Lane Playing Field.

It currently supports a wide variety of semi-natural habitats, considering its small size and low key recreational use.
