A classic National Trust estate of 994 hectares with Hall, Garden, Listed Park with open grown old trees, stream and lakes, and farmland and woodland beyond the Park. The inhand arable farmland and grassland has been organic since 2008 with wide field margins, good hedges. Impressive Coleoptera list of over 1000 species, good Diptera and Hemiptera lists. Some commissioned insect surveys undertaken recently, but need more regular moth trapping. Plant data good. Wimpole is remarkably rich in species for its location in south-west Cambridgeshire, surrounded by intensive arable agriculture.
