Burton & District Wildlife Group Twin Reserves Walk between Tucklesholme and Branston

Fri 2 Aug 2019

We are incredibly lucky, in the Burton area, to have two new and developing Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, Nature Reserves on our doorstep.

Branston Leas and Tucklesholme Reserves, will create a massive nature area, running from the brook alongside the Riverside Hotel, to the Barton/Walton interchange, on the A38, between the Burton to Birmingham railway and the River Trent.

Burton & District Wildlife Group will be leading a 4.5 mile (approx. 2.5 hours) circular walk round the new SWT wetland nature reserve at Tucklesholme, and along the Trent, to Branston Leas, a developing wood and grassland site.

Louise Morris, project manager, for the ‘Transforming The Trent Valley project’, will be along, to tell us how the wetlands of Tucklesholme and the new woods and meadows of Branston Leas, will fit within the ambitious environmental and leisure scheme, for the Trent Valley.

Join us for a walk, linking these two exciting new enhancements, to the Trent Valley;

Date and time; Saturday 10 August, 10.00 am.

Meeting at; Tucklesholme Reserve car park off Station Lane (the B5016 from the A38 towards Walton-on-Trent).

Cost; £3.00 for adults children free, all proceeds to Staffordshire Wildlife Trust

Burton & District Wildlife Group hold regular wildlife themed talks, normally on the first Tuesday of each month, or educational walks over the summer.
