How we look after Brockholes
Brockholes was once an active quarry site, supplying much of the materials to build large sections of the M6 motorway.
Since 2007, The Lancashire Wildlife Trust has been working to create a mosaic of habitats at Brockholes, working with the Landscape left behind from the quarrying. Along with our army of dedicated volunteers, and thanks to the income generated from our visitors, we are able not only to look after the reserve, but to help it grow and become a key site for wildlife.
There is a mix of habitats at Brockholes, from wetlands to woodlands and this helps attract a wide range of wildlife.
Happy habitats at Brockholes
The Lancashire Wildlife Trust are using their expertise to create habitats that will encourage lots of different species to visit the site.
