Brockholes is a brand new nature reserve, opened May 2011 with the UK's first floating Visitor Village. It has trails to enjoy, as well as shops where you can hunt out gifts and local produce, a restaurant and exhibition area, all floating on the lake.

Brockholes was a major quarry extraction site, adjacent to Junction 31 of the M6 which The Wildlife Trust successfully secured to regenerate as a mosaic of key habitats.

Brockholes is one of the best sites in the UK for many species of bird and has one of the largest strips of ancient woodland in the county.

Take a stroll by the River Ribble, explore the woods, enjoy the lakes on site, and view the other habitats which have all been specially designed to attract all kinds of wildlife for you to see.
