New Hall Valley Country Park covers 198 acres of green belt, one mile to the South East of Sutton Park. The park is an important site for nature conservation and consists of historic wetland, grazing meadows, former farmland and part of Plantsbrook. It borders on a number of privately owned listed buildings, including a corn mill that dates back to the 17th Century. The park includes a network of cycle routes and footpaths and two play areas for children.
New Hall Valley Country Park is valuable as a wildlife and landscape corridor, linking the complex of parks from Plantsbrook Local Nature Reserve in the South, through to Sutton Park National Nature Reserve in the North. Areas of the site are designated Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation.
The Valley is home to a wide range of animals and plants. Brook Trout, Kingfishers, Water Voles and Grey Herons can all be seen along the Plantsbrook. Oxeye Daisy and Black Knapweed grow in the wildflower areas, whilst other wild flowers such as Greater Burnet, Ragged Robin and Yellow Rattle can be found in the meadow. Birds of prey, including Buzzards, Kestrels and Sparrowhawks, can be spotted in the valley throughout the year.
