Details

Chelmer Valley Nature Reserve is located along the eastern banks of the River Chelmer. It runs for approximately 2.5km from Valley Bridge to Victoria Road.

The northern section between Valley Bridge and the footbridge to Fifth Avenue has unimproved grassland, old hedges, scrub, river-lined woodland, a seasonal pond and the river itself. The southern end is closest to housing and has more formally managed grass and standard trees. There are also some large trees and a marshy area next to the footbridge.

This site recently achieved a Green Flag Community Award. This is a national award that recognises high quality green spaces that are managed by voluntary and community groups.
