About the reserve
These abandoned clay pits have developed into ponds and pools rich with aquatic plant and insect life. Species such as water stick-insect and several rare species occur here. Nationally protected great crested newts breed in the ponds and the picturesque seed heads of common reedmace line the edges of the ponds. The map below is for indication purposes only and does not show the Wildlife Trusts definitive land boundary.
The Wildlife Trust Countryside Centre at Ramsey Heights is one of our key centres of activity. Find out more here.
