SHIPLEY NATURE RESERVE
In March 2011 Derbyshire Wildlife Trust acquired 183 acres of land at Shipley using a £606,000 grant from the 6Cs Strategic Green Infrastructure Growth Fund. The land previously collieries that have more recently been used for agriculture will now form the largest nature reserve in Derbyshire outside the Peak District National Park.
Now we are getting to know the wildlife of the site and are encouraging users to report their wildlife sightings to us via our website. We are also putting together a volunteer team to help with habitat creation and management.
