Bulwell

Bulwell sits in the very north of Nottingham city, and is near the open space beyond. Bulwell does well for wildlife, with a great mix of nature reserves and green spaces linked up to provide lots of great and interesting habitats. Bulwell is also home to the “Bulwell Bogs”-  both the original (Moorbridge Pond) and the new (Bulwell Bogs in the town centre).  The River Leen flows through the area, providing local wildlife with a great watery place to be.
