Creekmoor Ponds

This 14 acre site was originally a large land reserve. Mined heavily between 1920 and 1950, the sand removal left 2 large pits which flooded and became Creekmoor Ponds.

Types of habitat

As well as the 2 major ponds, the area consists of semi-mature woodland, scrub, tough grassland and remnant heathland.

What to see

Common woodland, waterfowl and dragonfly species.

This is also a good site to spot the:

  • great crested grebe which breeds here
  • colourful but small firecrest that winters here in small numbers

Parking

There is limited parking near this nature reserve.

Dogs

Your dog must be on a short lead during bird breeding: 1 March to 31 July every year, and when livestock is near. Remember to keep your dog under close control and to pick up after it.
