Eye Green,


Eye Green Local Nature Reserve is managed and maintained on behalf of Peterborough City Council by The Wildlife Trust. The reserve was formerly the site of the Northam Brickworks and it was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1996. The 25 acre site includes a 15 acre lake, a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest, areas of woodland, finger lakes and reed beds. The main lane has a number of fishing patforms suitable for disabled anglers (a fishing permit is required). There are resident swans, geese and other waterfowl. The lake is also a stopping off point for many migratory geese. There are also areas of grassland which are an array of colour in the spring and summer supporting many wildlife flowers including violets and pyramidal orchid.
