River Leen

The stretch of the River Leen within Nottingham City boundary - flowing from North to South originating at Kirkby in Sheffield and entering the City boundary at Bulwell near Moorbridge, flowing through Bulwell town centre, Basford, Radford and Lenton and into the south of the city centre to join the River Trent. Over the past 12 months, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has been supporting the Environment Agency in efforts to improve water quality along the River Leen thanks to funding support linked to the Water Framework Directive.
