Narborough Bog

Containing the only substantial deposit of peat in Leicestershire, the bog covers 9 hectares (22 acres) and is a SSSI. The peat started to form 6,000 years ago and is now 180 cm (70 in) deep. The habitats include wet woodland, scrub, some damp meadows and an extensive area of reed bed. Over 130 species of bird have been seen, including all three species of woodpecker, six species of tits, tawny owl pictured and kingfisher. Plant species include common meadow-rue, marsh thistle and a yellow berried form of guelder-rose.
Situated between the M1 motorway and the River Soar 8 km south of Leicester. From the city, turn left off the B4114 immediately before going under the motorway, and drive down the track to the sports club. Park near the club-house and walk across the recreation ground to the reserve entrance, which is just where the allotments and the nature reserve meet.
