I remember this place as the sewage works viewable from where I used to live in Bramley. Most of the works has been given over to the reserve. Only recently got to visit having done a local walk from Bramley Fall and then along the Leeds and Liverpool canal via Rodley. I like the fact this is a developing nature reserve and how its becoming a natural space again. Run by volunteers and it will, hopefully, continue to evolve. It's not a glamorous site but wildlife aren't interested in glamour. If you're interested in spotting wildlife, neither should you. There's free admission, free parking (blue badge near the visitor's centre), good signposting, toilets and the aforementioned visitor's centre. Hides and viewpoints by the lagoons, dipping ponds, mammal house and the Manager's garden hide is well worth a visit to watch birds feeding off tables. Go as a separate visit or combine it with a good walk along the Leeds Liverpool Canal. Either way, well worth it.
Note: Gates to the reserve are locked at 4.00pm
