UK»England»Hertfordshire»Ashwell Springs

Ashwell Springs: Ashwell Quarry is a fine example of how old chalk pits can develop into chalk grassland. The reserve stands as a sheltered oasis for wildlife in an otherwise agricultural landscape. Ashwell Quarry Springs are a minor source of the River Cam and have their own special wildlife interest. Due to the low temperatures of the spring pools, they provide a habitat for cold water, invertebrate animals, some of which are rare.
