About Straiton Pond Local Nature Reserve

Designated a Local Nature Reserve in 1991, this hidden gem is a fine example of industrial land reclaimed by nature.
For over a century (1850 - 1950's) the pond was a working clay pit, supplying local brickworks with blue clay. The reserve has changed a good deal since the last clay was extracted, and is now a pretty and peaceful spot for a picnic, stroll or bird watch.
