Sharphill Wood is the closest patch of countryside to Nottingham City Centre.  Its on a ridge above Trent Bridge and West Bridgford.

Walkers can hike up the hill and enjoy wide views across Nottingham,  then turn and dive into the wood to explore its varied scenery.

We are volunteers who keep the wood tidy and preserve the plants and animals within.   Join us one of our Sunday work parties and we'll show you around.

Why not say hello or join us on one of our monthly Sunday work parties ? Click here to get in touch. You can do as much or as little as you like, and perhaps burn off some energy in good company.

A management Plan for the wood


The tasks done during Sunday work parties are planned according to the Management Plan , which itself is written in conjunction with the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust and Rushcliffe Borough Council who own the land.

Nature surveys


We’ve got a collection of nature surveys carried out over the last few years, see below to read about the birds, butterflies trees and mushrooms that you can find during your walk
