Description

Plock Court is a 26 hectare park with significant sports facilities and a large open space for informal recreation.

The park is popular with dog walkers and kite fliers, and has long views out to the surrounding hills. The area is bounded by hedges which provide structure and excellent cover for wildlife, with a footpath leading to allotments in the south. Wotton Brook runs through the park and provides an interesting feature for wildlife and amenity. There are a number of mature trees that have been worthy of having tree preservation orders placed on them.

In 2010 a large wetland area was developed, to increase wildlife on the site, and also to act as a flood prevention scheme for the surrounding area. This has proven hugely beneficial to the site, attracting many insects, damselflies, dragonflies, birds and animals.

During the Summer months the field is covered in poppy's and wild flowers.  

There is a small car park.
