About this nature reserve

This 14 acre site was originally a large sand reserve. Mined heavily between 1920 and 1950, the sand removal left two large pits which flooded and became Creekmoor Ponds.

Apply for a fishing permit for this site. 

Types of habitat

As well as the two major ponds the area consists of semi-mature woodland, scrub, tough grassland and remnant heathland. 

What to see

Common woodland, waterfowl and dragonfly species.

This is a good site to spot: 

  • the great crested grebe which breeds here 
  • the colourful, but small firecrest that winters here in small numbers.

Parking

There is limited parking on roads near this nature reserve.

Dogs

Your dog must be on a short lead during bird breeding, 1 March - 31 July, or when livestock are near.

Remember to keep dogs under close control and to pick up after them.

Access

The ponds can be accessed from the end of Petersham Road.
