Robinswood Hill rises to 650 ft, It was originally one of the main sources of water to the city. The springs rising on Robin's Wood Hill were used by Gloucester Abbey in the 13th century. The Hill is now a County Park and Nature Reserve, occupying Two-hundred and fifty acres of open countryside with viewpoints, pleasant walks and way-marked nature trails that cover the hill. A traditional orchard has recently been revived and replanted, The summit hosts fabulous views of the Severn Bridge to the South, the Malvern Hills to the North and the Black Mountains to the West.
Historically the grasslands were managed by grazing animals and making hay. Evidence of previous use as farmland can be seen in the ridge and furrow pattern in some of the meadows, and the abundance of ancient hedgerows. This has helped to encourage the rich diversity of flowers and butterflies. Some areas are still cut for hay and grazed by the City Council’s herd of rare-breed cattle to help stop the meadows becoming overgrown.
A terrific walking landscape and a habitat for many creatures, the areas of scrub and woodland are particularly rich in bird life such as Red Kites, with summer visitors including warblers such as whitethroat, and sometimes cuckoo, buzzard and song thrush can be seen all year. Green woodpeckers may be found feeding on ant nests in the fields and you may have glimpses of rare winter visitors such as the secretive long-eared owl. Many mammals are found on Robinswood Hill. Rabbits and grey squirrels are the most obvious, Red foxes are sometimes seen during the day. Voles and shrews are common in the grasslands, where they are hunted by buzzards, kestrels and weasels.
