Brockholes is Lancashire Wildlife Trust's flagship nature reserve, a former quarry that has been transformed into a haven for birds, insects, mammals, plants and amphibians.

Now a mosaic of wetland, woodland and grassland habitats and located straight off junction 31 of the M6 at Preston, Brockholes is designed to introduce people to wildlife, educate the next generation and bring you closer to the nature on your doorstep.

PLEASE NOTE: The Visitor Village will be closed every Monday and Tuesday until 31 March. The reserve itself will be open as usual.
