Let's continue to keep everyone safe
Brockholes and the Lancashire Wildlife Trusts' other reserves are now open, but we do ask that you follow our rules when visiting in order to continue to keep everyone safe. We ask that you please wear a mask (if you are able to) when moving around indoors and please make sure you keep 2m apart at all times and check for updates on opening times.
Thank you for your continued support - we wouldn't be here without you.
