Silverhill has the highest artificial point in Nottinghamshire, crowned with a monument called “Testing for Gas” a tribute to the Miners of Nottinghamshire. The site is a former mine spoil heap on the site of what was Silverhill colliery which closed in the 1990s, and was subsequently developed in 2005 into what is now called Silverhill wood. The monument at the top of the site is surrounded by a modern stone circle of 8 stones aligned to the ordinal points.
The age of the wood is very apparent. There are no old trees, and little to no mushrooms pop up here in the autumn, indicating that the ecosystem is yet to fully develop into a mature environment. That being said there is quite a variety plants here, and no shortage of them are edible too. Common wildlife to see here include Buzzards, Crows, Row Deer, Swans and Mallards.
