Newbold Quarry Park: As its name suggests, Newbold Quarry is a former cement quarry, which flooded many years ago. The quarry was taken over by Rugby Borough Council in 1991, since then site security and access improvements have continued by the Council working with voluntary wardens and the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. Improvements to the footpath infrastructure have been carried out the site has seen the design and construction of a fishing pier to allow physically disabled people to reach the waters edge safely and a disabled user toilet and car park has also been provided. Bat boxes are provided and erected by the Warwickshire bat group around the site. The quarry has created a large pool with a thriving population of native white clawed crayfish, along with calcareous spoil heaps which support many lime loving plants and a wide range of butterflies. There is open access to the 26 acre site but visitors are asked to please observe the Country Code, take your litter home with you, keep dogs on a lead, where dogs are allowed, and keep to marked paths to avoid disturbing wildlife.
