Clinton's Hill

Berrybank Copse

This small woodland site, which is popular with local children for informal play as well as dog walking, has been restored for the benefit of local people and wildlife. Berrybank Copse was the recipient of a BBC Breathing Places grant. A number of impressive oak trees grow along the site boundary and a row of yews form a historic boundary line as a remnant of the site's past as Ministry of Defence land.

How to get there

The site is located in Berrybank, off Yorktown road, College Town, Sandhurst GU47 0PY. View our location map for Berrybank Copse.

You can access the copse from the end of Berrybank cul de sac.

Clinton's Hill

This small woodland site, which is popular with local children for informal play as well as dog walking, has previously been the recipient of a Big Lottery funded BBC Breathing Places grant to restore the site for the benefit of local people and wildlife.

History

Clinton’s Hill was originally part of Warfield Park, and became a natural buffer between newly built housing developments after Bracknell was selected as a ‘New Town’ in the early 1950s.

In 2008 Bracknell Forest Natural History worked with several local environmental groups including the Bracknell Conservation Volunteers, to conserve and improve the biodiversity of this unique breathing place.

Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace

Clinton's Hill is part of the Longhill Park group of public open spaces currently undergoing enhancement works as a Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace. This is to create an enjoyable natural environment for recreation away from the Thames Basin Heath Special Protection Area.

How to get there

The site is adjacent to the Bullbrook housing estate, north west of Lily Hill Park. View our location map for Clinton's hill.

There is a car park at the play area managed by Bracknell Town Council. Alternatively, parking is available a short distance away at Lily Hill Park’s North car park, off Lily Hill Road, Bracknell, RG12 2RX.

Scott's Hill

This small (1.2 hectare) woodland site on the edge of Bulbrook has in the past been the focus of a Big Lottery funded Breathing Places Project to improve access and increase biodiversity. This work was completed with the combined effort of the Bracknell Conservation Volunteers, the Bracknell Forest Natural History Society and the Bracknell Garden Club.

How to get there

Scott’s Hill is located in Bullbrook, off Drovers way, Bracknell, RG12 9EZ. View our location map for Scott's Hill.
