Wapley Bushes

Wapley Bushes is a popular nature reserve, consisting of 11.65 hectares of flower-rich meadows, ancient woodland, grassland and seasonal pond.

Awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award, Wapley Bushes is a great place for a dog walk, boasting plenty of large open grass space for doggies to run around. There’s also a seasonal pond in the corner of the top meadow for a doggie paddle.

We walked around the perimeter of Wapley Bushes in a circular route and it took us 45 minutes.

There's a small area to park on Besom Lane for about 6 cars, or park near the grass verges where the road is wider. Alternatively, you can park on Shire Way, there is a pedestrian crossing that leads to a gate opposite Cherington.
