Pool with islands, Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve southeast of Coventry
The reserve was created on the site of former sand and gravel workings and subsidence in the Avon floodplain. Water, reedbeds, wetland and woodland are the main habitats. It is managed by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust who established their headquarters there.
Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve
Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) consisting of 228 acres (92 ha) of pools, reedbeds, marsh and woodland. The pools alongside the river Avon occur as a result of a combination of subsidence of old underground colliery workings and later sand and gravel extraction, leaving pools in the disused gravel pits and settling pools.
