WELCOME TO DERRINGTON MILLENNIUM GREEN
A place for all to enjoy
What We Do
Derrington Millennium Green is located near to Stafford in the Midlands, United Kingdom. The site consist of approximately 13 acres of wild flower meadows, orchards, pond and woodland. The Green is managed by the villagers, via a trust and trustees, all of whom are volunteers. The aim of the site is to provide a natural open space where nature can flourish and the villages and the general population can take a break from the hectic world we live in.
Adjacent to The Millennium Green is Duddas Wood. This is a 23 acre site and was purchased as part of the original project. It is now managed by the Woodland Trust ....
How we started
In March 1998 two fields, adjacent to the village, were put up for sale. Considering that the smaller eleven acre field would make an ideal wildlife area, a group of volunteers sought out ways to buy the land and turn it into a village amenity ........
