Clara Vale Local Nature Reserve

About

After the closure of the Clara Vale pit in 1966 nature reclaimed this site, which was then saved from development in 1986 by a campaign led by local villagers.  It became a protected Local Nature Reserve in 1995 and is now home to a wonderful variety of wildlife in every season.

Site always open, free.
