Friends of Burgess Field

Burgess Field is a reclaimed landfill site, now home to a nature reserve. It is located alongside the eastern edge of Port Meadow just north of the new railway bridge at the end of Aristotle Lane, covering an area of approximately 30 hectares (75 acres). It is a mix of rough open grassland and small copses, with a belt of more mature trees along its northern end, and can be accessed from over the railway bridge at the end of Aristotle Lane and along the causeway on Port Meadow, or across Wolvercote Common from Wolvercote. If you look at the second map, the hand drawn one, you can see the two entrances and the various paths round the reserve.
