Hill Hook Local Nature Reserve

Hill Hook Local Nature Reserve is located in Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, not far from Sutton Park. This hidden oasis of green, bordered by residential streets, is an outstanding site with a wide variety of habitats ranging from grassland, scrub and dry woodland to open water, marsh and alder carr woodland. This provides habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals.

 

The large pool originally provided water to Hill Hook Corn Mill, which operated from the mid 1600's, and was sadly demolished in the 1970's. The Mill Pool now provides the focal point for the 7.7 hectors Local Nature Reserve.

 

The site is owned by Birmingham City Council and managed jointly by them, Friends of Hill Hook Local Nature Reserve and The Birmingham & Black Country Wildlife Trust.

 

Friends of Hill Hook Local Nature Reserve are part of The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham & the Black Country.
