Newdigate Brickworks Nature Reserve
Newdigate Brickworks Nature Reserve
Newdigate Brickworks opened in c.1928 and was a successful business for many years. The works closed during the Second World War and much of the site became derelict, but handmade bricks were made here on a smaller scale after the war, the trade lasting until 1974. The site then lay derelict until 2004, when a housing development was built on the old factory site and the four lakes left over from quarrying became a public nature reserve managed by the Surrey Wildlife Trust. The reserve covers 43 acres of lake, grassland and woodland near the centre of this grid-square.
