Nature Reserve


Blashford Lakes is a series of former gravel pits surrounded by grassland and willow, birch and alder woodland. The Dockens Water stream flows through the reserve and is bounded by ancient woodland of oak and beech. This is also the site of one of our education centres and has a number of bird hides around the site.
