Windy Nook Nature Park
Windy Nook Nature Reserve is a large open space with spectacular panoramic views of Tyneside's economic heartland and the east coast beyond. The smaller area near the Methodist Chapel is known as Windy Nook Nature Park and is designated as a Local Nature Reserve. The Nature Park supports a remnant of acid heath grassland, scrub habitat and a spring fed wetland.
In recent years a large amount of works have been carried out to improve the wider Windy Nook site including installing fencing to prevent unauthorized motor bike access, creating and improving paths and nature conservation operations across the site such as woodland thinning.
