“Nature Reserve’s Future Set in Stone”

Tuesday 27th September

Quarry Holes Nature Reserve, near Cinderhill, has been improved thanks to a £23 000 grant.

The funding, from Biffaward, has helped pay for new fencing, improved security and better access at the urban nature reserve along with changes to improve the habitat for our county’s wildlife.
 
Trent Bridge legacy
The site is of historic importance to Nottinghamshire, having been used as quarry since the 15th century until one hundred years ago. Stone from the site was even used to repair Trent Bridge in 1458.
 
More secure
With the help of our volunteers, we have made many improvements to the reserve, which includes replacing the fence along one part of the perimeter to improve security and creating better access by improving one of the entrances.
 
Wildflower wonder
Thanks to the funding we have also planted hedges, which are an invaluable habitat for much of Britain’s wildlife, removed invasive sycamore trees to be replaced by British species and have created a wildflower meadow (pictured) that will be home to many important species of plants and animals.
