Colin Burt Reserve

For Wildlife Conservation


The Colin Burt Reserve for Wildlife Conservation was opened as a memorial to the late Colin Burt, a keen conservationist who sadly passed away aged 38 as a result of a motorcycle accident.

Opened in 2005, the 50 acre site was a poor-quality piece of waste wet land, but work quickly started to transform the site into a diverse nature reserve which can be enjoyed by all.


 As you walk around the site, you can enjoy a range of different habitats, including woodland, wetland, meadow and river. This is what makes the reserve such an important space for conservation and learning, you can see all different types of life and experience being outdoors.
