Bingham Linear Walk

Welcome to the website of Friends of Bingham Linear Park. The park is a Local Nature Reserve running along the line of an abandoned railway.

The Park is owned by Bingham Town Council. It was opened in 2004 by the late Professor David Bellamy. The Friends Group has been in existence since 2002 and is chaired by Bill Bacon. Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust have provided support and guidance to the Friends Group and to Bingham Town Council. There is a management plan for the park which the Friends use to guide their activities. The main aims of the management plan are to enhance and preserve the biodiveristy of the site and to maintain it for the users of the park.


The park is a haven for a wide range of plants and animals in an otherwise intensely farmed landscape. The old railway line provides a variety of slopes, surface types and aspects which also encourages a diverse array of wildlife.
