This area was raised by a ranger at Brierley a few years ago.
It is South of Brierley and the main Sutton-Huthwaite Road.
It would eventually enable the joining of the 2 areas..... if required with a small amount of urban area similar to Shireoaks.
Area visited by KS 2010 in Winter just after being landscaped and it was bleak and relatively featureless but appeared to have some potential.
Since then it has matured with the normal (albeit sparse) collection of hard paths and dense shelter belt planting.
The vast majority is Rough Open with some slopes along the S & W sides and some very large man made point features however there is now a large central area that is fenced off as O.O.B where presumably Methane is being extracted.
This could have been landfill in the past as opposed to NCB Spoil - no idea how long this extraction will last but it looks to be a big operation.
Also some of the central area is planted with some sort of crop (possibly unripe weedy maize)
It holds some potential but probably one for the back boiler unless we want to get a foot in the door?
