About Newgate Nature reserve
Formed from the now closed landfill site, Newgate nature reserve is a fine example of how industrial land can be returned to nature.
The tip closed in 2000 and has quickly developed into a complex mixture of open grassland, scrub, newly developing woodland and wet areas along drainage ditches, giving the whole site a rich biodiversity.
You can explore the site using the network of surfaced and way marked rights of way.
Horse riders and cyclists please keep to the way marked bridle ways to protect the wildlife.
