Aubrey Buxton Nature Reserve

Aubrey Buxton Nature Reserve is a 9.7 hectare nature reserve west of Elsenham in Essex. It was donated to the Essex Wildlife Trust by Aubrey Buxton and his wife in 1976.The site was previously a park for Norman House. It is woodland on a sandy and gravel soil, with meadows and six man-made ponds. Grassland plants include cowslips, wild strawberries and common spotted orchids.Common woodland birds such as nuthatch and all three woodpeckers, and many species of butterfly. Black poplars, which are the county's rarest native tree, have been planted to replace trees lost to storm damage.
There are a number of large ponds providing ideal habitat for Great Crested Newts, dragonflies and damselflies.
