Seaton and Lower Bircham Valley (LNR)

Seaton & Lower Bircham Valleys are situated to the south of Derriford Hospital and to the east of Crownhill stretching down to Forder Valley Road. Importantly the site is considered to be part of the Derriford Growth area of the city and these valleys provide a critical element to ensuring that the growth of this district of the city is sustainable by providing high quality natural environment with new public access for informal and formal activity.

Seaton Valley has historically been farmed as pasture and hay meadows and within the valley there is one remaining farm – Poole Farm.
