Winnall Moors

At the back of North Walls Recreation Ground is one of the entrances to Winnall Moors. Unfortunately dogs aren't allowed any further than this. The Itchen River runs through the Moors and the path leads on to surfaced paths, boardwalks and bridges, so you can enjoy the wetland without your wellies! The project to restore the Moors began in September 2008 to develop a nature reserve here and is still ongoing.


  1. How lovely - it was a bit of a wilderness when I last went there, very overgrown. I sat on one side of the river in the park one day watching a family trying to fight their way through the undergrowth on the other.

  2. I read that the area was used by people sleeping rough and some other 'anti social' behaviour, so it's definitely improved the area
