The 67 hectare site is one of the flagship nature reserves of the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (www.bbowt.org.uk). Formerly it was a busy chalk quarry operated by Castle Cement to serve its nearby works in Pitstone. Teams of volunteers have transformed it into a delightful place of tranquility. It has three walking trails, including the circular two-mile Wild Trail, a learning centre for school children, and an eco visitor centre and café. Opened in 2010, the centre has great views of the lakes.
