Limestone reclaimation at its best - see what nature can do if left to its own devices. A haven of tranquillity best visited on a warm, sunny and calm day when the sound of the skylarks can be heard against a backdrop of bees humming and the occasionally disturbed pheasant. We visited on just such a day in April when... More

As you wander through the quarry you never know what you will see. Lovely butterflies and wild plants. Interesting to see how the layers of stone have been excavated

Well used paths meander around the reserve, and popular with friendly locals. We've visited this reserve several times over the years and it's good way to see how nature is reclaiming the land back.

Walked in the area whilst looking for geocaches, it was very interesting and the paths were easy to follow. It seemed reasonably accessible for buggies etc... and there were only a few large puddles despite downpours every morning. We enjoyed the flora and fauna too seeing butterflies everywhere when the wind dropped and the sun came out.
