Somersham Local Nature Reserve by Matthew Ernst

Somersham Local Nature Reserve (LNR) is a wonderful example of how nature reclaims places if left alone. This is part of the railway line from Cambridge to March, built in 1848 for the transport of coal and agricultural produce before closing in 1967. The nature reserve is 12 hectares, and is home to a wide variety of wildlife and includes areas of woodland, grassland and wildflower meadows, a lake and a wet woodland. The disused railway line is designated as a County Wildlife Site to recognise the importance of its neutral grassland within the county. (Somersham, England)
