Fibbersley Local Nature Reserve
Fibbersley Local Nature Reserve
This was declared as a nature reserve in 1999. The site was formerly occupied by deep coal mines dating from the 19th century, clay pits, railways and the Bentley Canal. All of these have been abandoned and the much scarred site has reverted to nature leaving an important wetland habitat of pools, meadows and woodland.

This access point is on the line of the Bentley Canal, closed in the 1950s.
