Millfield

Encircled by water, with the River Great Ouse on one side and the Millrace on the other, Millfield is a relatively small area of floodplain that connects to the Ouse Valley Park.

What to see and What to do

Don’t miss

Millfield is well worth a visit if you are interested in wildflowers; there is a meadow section which features many wildflowers throughout the year. See if you can spot species including yarrow, knapweed, bedstraw, oxeye daisy, birdsfoot trefoil, ragged robin, plantains, cowslip, selfheal, buttercup, yellow rattle, sorrel, betony and clover. There is also an attractive avenue of Black Poplars along the path by the river.

Millfield is a good place for dog walking and there is also an area for recreational play, with rugby posts. There is a fenced off play area at the bottom of the park; this is not managed or maintained by The Parks Trust.

Please remember that this is a floodplain and so is prone to flooding.
