Brockholes Nature Reserve, near Preston


Fancied clearing away the festive cob-webs today so went for a walk at Brockholes Nature Reserve. It is owned and managed by The Lancashire Wildlife Trust who are working to create different habitats to attract lots of different species to the site. These habitats include a pit. a pool, a lake, a marsh and woodland with three different trails leading around them. As we’ve had so much rain up here in Lancashire lately the longer trails were waterlogged and tricky to get through.


Still the kids had fun at the wooden adventure play area and we fed some Canadian Geese on the Meadow Lake by the Visitor Village. Here we found the information centre, restaurant and a lovely gift shop called The Nest, I think we’ll come back when it’s warmer and the trails have dried up. There is a lovely picnic area and so much more to explore.


Brockholes are running free Winter Walks. On Wednesday between 1.30pm – 3pm there is the Midweek Meander and on Sundays there is the Guided Reserve Walk 1.30pm – 4pm.

  1. Definitely, we’ll be back this summer. Brockholes has a well stocked information centre with staff from the Wildlife Trust on hand to answer questions.
