Old Brickworks Nature Reserve

Old Brickworks Nature Reserve: The area has had a diverse history. A thriving clay pit and brick making factory in the 1950's, nature reclaimed the area once the industry had gone. The post industiral legacy of small pools, grassland and small patches of scrub proved ideal for amphibians. To provide suitable habitat for great crested newts, and the other amphibians on site, the remaining open spaces were seeded with a wildflower grassland mix. The mix is bright and colourful in summer, providing nectar and pollen for butterflies, bees and many other insects. Flowers to look out for include: Ox Eye Daisy, Buttercup, Yellow Rattle, Birds Foot Trefoil, Grass Vetchling, Common Vetch and Quaking Oat Grass.
