Welcome to the Friends of Marconi Ponds website. You will find lots of information and news about our group including information about how you can join us and become involved. The Marconi Ponds site is an area of wooded land and ponds in central Chelmsford, Essex. The area is perfect for wildlife including foxes, deer, small mammals and a variety of bird species.
Local people are invited to volunteer with tasks ranging from practical conservation, helping with community events on the site or helping to promote and manage the project as part of the ‘Friends’ group. Please feel free to contact us about any aspect of the project. Read more…
The Site is a registered Local Nature Reserve (LNR). LNR is a statutory designation for sites that provide special local interest; the Marconi Ponds Nature Reserve is locally important for wildlife, education and enjoyment.
