Nature

Hadleigh Park is a nationally important wildlife site spanning over 500 acres with a wonderful range of both flora and fauna.

The variety of habitats that we have include woodland, grassland, scrub, hedges, grazing marsh, sea wall, saltmarsh, ditches and ponds mean we have several very rare species, such as the Deptford Pink.

We are also the only UK site for Hartwort and other rare plants such as the Hairy Vetchling and Bithynian Vetch.
