Attraction Information

The whole reserve is closed until Summer 2016 while we build our exciting new Wildlife Discovery Centre! The entire reserve is classed as a construction site. However there are a few open days to get a sneak peek! Open Days are on 13 September, 11 October, 8 November and 13 December, 10.30am to 3.30pm.

Hauxley Nature Reserve is part of the former Radcliffe open cast coal mine, which was landscaped to produce a lake with islands. There are wonderful views across the reserve and down Druridge Bay. This reserve is best known for its birdlife, both breeding and visiting. The meadow areas, in particular, are used by a wide range of butterflies from the small skipper to the common blue. Dragonflies such as common darter and common hawker hunt over these open areas. The small ponds are home to great crested newts, amongst other mini beasts.

The paths, including those to the hides, are buggy friendly.
