You may not know it, but we are currently in “Love Your Parks Week”. So let’s look at Barling Magna Nature Reserve. A good place for a stroll… and a picnic.
We’ve written before about the reserve:
… The 12 acre site had been part of the Southend Borough?s old defunct sewerage farm and had become a general dumping ground and derelict rubbish site….
….Barling Magna Parish Council owns and maintains this reserve which is run mostly by volunteers from the community and beyond. We aim to apply for grants in order that we can proceed to fulfil our ambition to make this a legacy for the future.
The many hours spent on site have resulted in a green space of which Barling Magna Parish Council is justly proud. Please enjoy the reserve and help us to look after it – it is for all to use!…
