Paradise Local Nature Reserve
Paradise LNR is located SW of Sheep’s Green and Lammas Land Recreation Ground on the west bank of the River Cam. This pleasant woodland contains a central marsh area, wet woodland and a number of riverside mature willows. Notable species include Butterbur, which was first recorded over 400 years ago and the rare Musk beetle, which favours wet woodland tree species such as willows in which to lay its eggs.
A newly installed boardwalk has improved access to the site but flooding is common in the winter and some paths may become difficult. Paradise is aptly named and should be included on your walk by the river.
Recently, to bring all these people together, we formed the Friends of Paradise to celebrate the reserve and help with its preservation and management.
