Pipe Green Common, Lichfield
Pipe Green Trust

Pipe Green Common is an 11 hectare site located close to Lichfield. It is an area of meadowland surrounded by arable fields, parkland and woods. It has been grazed since Medieval times and as a result is one of the few remaining meadowland habitats in the area.

It is managed by the Pipe Green Trust who receive Government funding to help maintain this rare habitat. Over 100 bird species have been recorded on the Green and the surrounding area (including Leomansley wood). A number of rare plant and invertebrate species can also be found and as a result Pipe Green is designated as a site of Biological Importance (SBI).

It is best accessed off the A51 Western bypass. Free parking is available by the Council football fields and a short walk across them will bring you to one of the kissing gates accessing Pipe Green.

A visit to Leomansley woods is well worth a visit. This can be accessed from Pipe Green using the kissing gate near Leomansley House and walking past the fishing ponds towards Christchurch Lane. Leomansley woods is on your right hand side.
