Enjoy a peaceful walk through this lovely nature reserve near Newport, Staffordshire. In the reserve you'll find well surfaced footpaths taking you through pretty woodland and along the large mere which is the largest natural lake in the West Midlands. The area is great for birdwatching too. Look out for Eurasian curlew and common snipe from one of the bird hides. The reedbed habitat also supports reed warbler and sedge warbler while marsh harrier and osprey have also been seen in the area.
This walk takes you to the reserve from the village of Forton just north of Newport. You can also reach the reserve by bike using National Cycle Network Route 55 and Regional Route 75.

The mere is a nice place for a peaceful dog walk. Please keep them on leads in the reserve because of the wildlife though.
