Nature Reserves

Film – As the Crow flies: Nature on our doorstep.

A short film showing the striking landscapes and richness of the new Local Nature Reserves at Peel Park and Woodnook Vale. The film was prepared for a Celebration of Nature Event held on 11 July 2018. Distinguished guests from national, regional and local organisations joined with local people and Hyndburn Borough Council in recognising the special qualities and achievements of Hyndburn.

Much loved by local people, these are now the largest Local Nature Reserves in Lancashire and Hyndburn is also the first district in Lancashire to meet UK targets for natural green space.
