About

February is the time to see the annual spectacular display of Snowdrops in bloom at this Nature Reserve, by Staunton Harold Reservoir. Dimminsdale is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Besides the Snowdrops, there are plenty of different species of flora and fauna to spot including hares, green woodpeckers, sheep's fescue, heath grass, heath bedstraw. Everyone is invited to see the display. Visitors should be careful to keep to the paths as there are several old mine shafts on the reserve.
