Rixton Clay Pits Nature Reserve
Rixton Clay Pits Nature Reserve
An interesting nature reserve and SSSI, owned and managed by Warrington Borough Council. Formed from the clay pits of a disused brickworks excavated in the glacial boulder clay of the area. When the works closed in the 1960's the excavations began to fill with water forming a number of variously sized ponds. Great Crested Newt colonise many of these ponds and the site is well known for the variety of wildlife found there. Many species of Dragonfly, Damselfly and fungi are represented.
