What to see: Beeston Sidings is one of the largest post industrial sites remaining within the City of Nottingham. Originally a railway marshalling yard, Beeston Sidings was abandoned over 50 years ago and fell into disuse over a period of years. Formally 9 hectares, the site was divided into two sections and 5 hectares was converted into sports field for recreational use. The remainder of the site was left as an informal green space to encourage wildlife to the area.

Volunteer and 'Friends': For information about volunteering and 'Friends' groups, please contact the manager and see teh local authority or managing body's website.
