Welcome to friends of Ecological Owlthorpe

Public Inquiry Information supporting Ecological Owlthorpe as an upstream nature based solution protecting the environment from downstream flooding.

Interpretation Boards

Our award-winning oasis was opened in 2012 by Clive Betts MP for Sheffield South East. The Land managment was undertaken and monitored by Natural England by their Higher-Level Stewardship Scheme. Some 795 local school children were involved in the project together with hundreds of members of the local community who now use the oasis on a regular basis. Thank you all who took part in this environmentaly friendly project.
