Further information

This woodland within Preston Park was declared a nature reserve in 2004. It is a former Victorian Quarry that has now been reclaimed by nature. Its location at the far southern edge of the park and its mix of trees such as beech, alder, oak, horse chestnut and larch make this a pleasant and quiet retreat from the bustle of other areas of the park.rnrn Part of the quarry is now flooded and provides a home for frogs, toads, newts and birds such as moorhen, as well as a host of invertebrates. The mature woodland of beech, alder, ash, horse chestnut and oak provides for a wealth of wildlife and woodland flowers. You may hear the drumming of a great spotted woodpecker and at night the hoots of a tawny owl. Rabbits abound and foxes and even roe deer have been seen. Making this a great trail race not to be missed! Fantastic scenic route. All finishers will receive a selection box.
