The River Trent runs through the Staffordshire University site on Leek Rd in Shelton.
Not a lot of people know that.
There is a big Nature Reserve at the back of the University. You can download a guide to a walk and species of wildlife and plants at the website here. It’s a beautiful area with mown paths. Great for a walk.
See if you can spot any of the 250 trees planted in the spring 2015 by the Staffordshire University Greenpad volunteers.
