In September 2022, Langley Fields was declared a local nature reserve in the Telford and Wrekin Borough.
The local nature reserve covers an area of 13 hectares located on mounds of an old industrial and mining waste site. It is comprised of a mosaic of pools and woodland with scrub and large areas of heathland. The site is rich in amphibian and reptile species, birds and invertebrates including dingy skipper butterfly. Woodland, heathland, grassland and bare ground areas create a diverse mosaic of habitats across the site. The site is a designated Local Wildlife Site.
Some areas of the site are steep slopes which can be challenging for some visitors. Some viewpoints at the top provide a unique perspective view looking over Telford.
