Paxton Pits

UK»England»Cambridgeshire»Paxton Pits

There is so much to see at Paxton Pits if you are patient. Part of Paxton Pits Nature Reserve and some parts of the wider Pits complex are County Wildlife Sites, designated by The Wildlife Trust because of their scarce flora and importance for breeding waders and warblers. The countrys longest long distance footpath, from Brackley in Northamptonshire to Kings Lynn in Norfolk, forms the eastern edge of the Paxton Pits complex. The local authority manages the site for people and wildlife and many villagers are visitors, volunteers and Friends of Paxton Pits. There is good parking and access for all the family. As with all these sites 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.
