Devon Wildlife Trust
A disused limestone quarry, now home to various plants, birds and bats
The reserve consists of a steep sided flooded quarry, surrounded by spoil heaps that are now largely covered by wildflower rich open areas, scrub and woodland. The flooded quarry attracts kingfisher, little grebes and peregrine falcons. Eleven different species of bat, including greater and lesser horseshoes and Natterer's, find roosts in the buildings and tunnels.
Access to the nature reserve is limited to a footpath which passes through. Deep water filled former quarry workings and buildings mean that wider access is not permitted.
