Lattersey Nature Reserve

Lattersey Local Nature Reserve, New Road, Whittlesey

A disused quarry, now a haven for wildlife.

This local nature reserve used to be a quarry for brick clay and ‘borrow’ material used to build the local railway. The abandoned pits filled with water, providing a haven for the wildlife.

Follow the boardwalk to explore this important wetland, home to a variety of wildlife including water voles, water shrews and insects, especially dragonflies and damselflies, rare beetles and moths.
