About the reserve
Hill Hook Local Nature Reserve is located in Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, not far from Sutton Park. This hidden oasis of green, bordered by residential streets, is an outstanding site with a wide variety of habitats ranging from grassland, scrub and dry woodland to open water, marsh and alder carr woodland. This provides habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals.
The site has a fascinating history. The large pool originally provided water to Hill Hook Corn Mill, which operated from the mid 1600's, and was sadly demolished in the 1970's. The Mill Pool now provides the focal point for the reserve.
