About Us

Jacksons’ Brickworks in Higher Poynton is a special place, reclaimed by nature after its industrial interlude. It is now so valuable for wildlife that it has been designated a Local Nature Reserve (LNR). The 9½ hectare site is managed as a mosaic of different habitats including Wetland, Grassland, Semi-natural Woodland and scrub.

It is especially important for the great crested newt, a species protected under European law.

There is a free car park, wheelchair access route to Middlewood Way and information boards containing walks and wildlife sightings.
