Dothill Local Nature Reserve
For wildlife and you
This haven for wildlife is a large area of green open space in the northwest corner of Telford. Designated as a Local Nature Reserve in 2016, it is owned by Telford & Wrekin Council and freely accessible to the public.
The LNR comprises three main areas: Dothill Pool, Tee Lake and Beanhill Valley. Although it is surrounded by residential areas and main roads, the Reserve is the tranquil home to a diverse range of habitats and species over fairly gentle terrain. There are lakes, streams, woods and open meadows. It is small enough to explore within a few hours, yet large enough to be a peaceful retreat from everyday life.
There are various walks around the Reserve, including the 50 Tree Trail and the shorter, circular route the Three Bridge Way.
The Henge provides a focal point and central place to meet, where the Friends group hold various events throughout the year.
Parking is available a short distance from the west entrances to the Reserve at Admaston House Community Centre. ‘The Pheasant Inn’ at Admaston is also conveniently close.

A big thank you to all you wonderful volunteers, what an amazing paradise you have developed.
Hi, I'm afraid to say I've discovered a hole in my parley where my keys used to be whilst walking through the reserve. Do you have a page or a forum I could post on in case someone finds them?
We have a Lost & Found page on this website where I could pop the details - your best bet though is probably our Facebook page which I see you've already done!
Hi, do the friends of dothill ever meet and do work at the weekends?
Hello, thank you for your message. We used to run a monthly Saturday session but these were discontinued in 2019 due to lack of interest. Space limited here - can I help with anything else?

Thank you for your emails over the last year. I am unfortunately unable to offer any assistance, but I wish to express my thanks to you & the workers. You have all made such a difference to the area.
