Stargate Ponds and Bewes Hills


Besides the A694 at Stargate roundabout, Stargate Ponds and Bewes Hills is an area of grassland and wildlife rich ponds, reclaimed from former quarrying and opencast activities. It is an important area for many species of plants, birds and insects that are disappearing from the wider countryside due to development and modern agricultural practices.
