Top Field Cozens Grove

Top Field Cozens Grove (Wormley Top Field) has been designated a Local Nature Reserve by Natural England and in 2009 it achieved its first Green Pennant award. In 2015 it was awarded the coveted Green Flag Community Award again.

Predominantly a wildflower meadow, mown paths through the grassland offer long views across to the Nazeing Ridge and there is an abundance of wild flowers and birds. Adjoining Top Field is Cozens Grove, an ancient wood with a medieval sunken ditch.

Major project work underway thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund

Historical links between two open spaces in Broxbourne, split by the laying of the A10, will be recognised using Heritage Lottery Fund money. Habitats will be restored and visitor access improved by the works at Baas Hill Common, and Top Field and Cozens Grove Local Nature Reserve. The project will take place after Friends of Wormley Open Spaces (FOWOS), with support from Broxbourne Council, successfully applied for funding. The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) awarded £66,800 and FOWOS and the Council have contributed to reach a total of £74,479.
Volunteers’ tasks will include historical research, photography, carpentry, coppicing, tree planting and bird box making. Anyone interested should call the Council’s Parks Manager, Pamela Hallesy, on 01992 785555 ext. 5620.
