Paxton Pits Nature Reserve

Paxton Pits as a wildlife haven is a fairly recent event; millions of years of history went into making it the place it is today. The geology of the Ouse Valley makes it a good area to quarry for sand and gravel, which in turn creates holes that are great for wildlife. The quarrying has dug up some fascinating insights into local history too.
