Members of the public are being invited to enjoy a rare glimpse of one of Wolverhampton's nature reserves.

An open day is being held at Pendeford Mill, a site of environmental and historical significance, on Sunday (10 May).

The 59 acres of naturally managed countryside date back to the 13th century and provide a stable and protected habitat for wildlife on the edge of Wolverhampton.

Pendeford Mill is an idyllic spot with an ever changing array of flora and fauna on show, but because of the sensitive environmental nature of the site visits must normally be booked in advance. However, it will be opening its doors to everyone this Sunday between 10am and 4pm.

Pendeford Mill Nature Reserve is on Pendeford Hall Lane. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult and sturdy shoes or boots are recommended. Please note that dogs are not allowed on the reserve.
