Mill Hill Substation Pastures is a fifteen hectare[1] Local Nature Reserve, a Site of Metropolitan Importance, in Mill Hill in the London Borough of Barnet, England.

The reserve consists of pastures grazed by horses around Mill Hill Electricity Substation. These contain patches of unimproved London Clay grassland. Locally uncommon plants include devil's bit scabious, sneezewort, pepper-saxifrage and red bartsia. The dividing hedges appear to be very old, and Burtonhole Brook, a tributary of Folly Brook, flows through the site, adding to its diversity of habitat. Breeding birds include spotted flycatcher.[2]

The reserve is on private land, but can be viewed from Burtonhole Lane and Partingdale Lane.
