This lovely nature reserve in the Aire Valley has some nice footpaths to follow around the substantial site. The reserve includes a number of pretty lakes and nice riverside paths along the River Aire. You can look out for hundreds of different species of birds from a number of bird hides. Habitats in the reserve include flood meadows, wet fenland, marsh andreed bed, woodland and scrub.
To continue your walking you can pick up the Wakefield Canal in Castleford and enjoy a waterside walk along the towpath.
