Leighton Moss Nature Reserve

Leighton Moss is the largest reedbed in north-west England, and is only 15 minutes from Redwell Fisheries.

It is home to some really special birds such as breeding bitterns, bearded tits and marsh harriers. You might see deer too, not to mention butterflies aplenty!

Choose from a selection of trails and hides, most of which are suitable for wheelchairs, and get right to the heart of the reedbed. Or take the nature trail alongside two coastal lagoons to see lots of wading and water birds (ask in the visitor centre for more details.)

Children will love finding out more about the reserve from the displays in the visitor centre and you can also enjoy a drink and snack in the tea room.
