Brockholes Wetland Nature Reserve.

Work has started on the development of the Lancashire Wildlife Trust reserve at Brockholes - just outside Preston (J31/M6). The site, a disused gravel quarry of 160 hectares, with £8M of funding from the Wildlife Trust, the Forestry Commission and the Northwest Regional Development Agency, will be turned into a major wetland and woodland reserve with wildlife and visitors in mind. The site hopes to attract 250,000 visitors a year and will be open in 2011.
