Hose Lane Notified Road Verge

How to get there:

The site is part of the public highway.


The Notified Road Verge Scheme is managed by Nottinghamshire County Council to give special management of particularly important examples of grassland that are either very diverse or which host rare species.

Verges of varied sward type with a rich unimproved meadow flora. The north west section has a wet ditch (great willowherb is abundant) with meadowsweet and tufted hair-grass suggesting waterlogged conditions. The mid- and southern verges have a mesotrophic flora suggestive of drier conditions. Flora includes spiny restharrow and yellow rattle. Backed by rich hedges with large oak and ash trees.
