Lordsdale Greenway travels for 2.25 miles from Dale Road to Lord’s Hill Way. At its northern end it links into Lord’s Wood Greenway and then into Lord’s Wood Plantation beyond. The Greenway follows the stream valleys of Tanner’s Brook and Holly Brook which supports several important habitats and species.
Lordsdale Greenway has been locally designated and protected as a site of importance for nature conservation (SINC). Habitats present include alder swamp woods, unimproved grassland and semi improved grassland. These support species such as wood horsetail (equisetum sylvaticum) which is rare in Hampshire and the nationally important bluebell (hyacinthoides non-scripta).
