Brockholes Nature Reserve

This fairly new nature reserve situated next to the M6 motorway at the south Preston junction. It is a very nice place to spend time viewing wildlife with good walkways and hides. There are very helpful staff and a good restaurant. I enjoyed my time there although the viewing points and hides are set a bit too far back for good photography. Cycling is allowed on the tracks which are all surfaced with limestone chippings and dust.
