Lodge Field

Image of Lodge Field nature reserve

Declared as a Local Nature Reserve in 2008, Lodge Field at 3 hectares is an inspiring place for local photographers, poets and creative people with views across the Ironbridge Gorge and nearby woodlands.

Coupled with The Beeches Field and Madeley Pit Mounds, the area forms a 'green corridor' along the north edge of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.

Things to see and do

The Lodge Field Local Nature Reserve, along with the neighbouring local nature reserve The Beeches, is one of the most important grassland sites in the borough.

The area is steeped in local history and many of the stories told involving the field directly have been documented by local historians. The Lodge, a 16th/17th century building, from which the site derives its name, still overlooks Lodge Field.

There is free access to the field which contains areas of meadow with a significant number of rare plant varieties, areas of scrub, small springs and a boggy area that between them provide a variety of habitats for birds, amphibians, reptiles, insects, moths, butterflies and small mammals. The display of wildflowers in the meadows is spectacular during the summer months.

A walk on this site can be easily linked to the Beeches Local Nature Reserve which lies to the Northeast, and Rough Park to the Northwest.

Both this site and its neighbour The Beeches are cared for in partnership between Telford & Wrekin Council and the Ironbridge Meadows Group, who are part of the Telford Green Spaces Partnership.
