Local Nature Reserves

There are many sites and areas in Broxtowe which are valuable for wildlife. The Council has formally designated 15 Local Nature Reserves (LNRs) and has a policy to declare more sites whenever possible. Find out more about our LNRs and where they are located.

Attenborough Nature Reserve

Attenborough Nature Reserve

Situated 7km south west of Nottingham's city centre, Attenborough Nature Reserve was once an area of wet grassland alongside the River Trent. As a result of decades of gravel extraction and careful restoration, the area has become a haven for wildlife.  The council, the Wildlife Trust and the site owners CEMEX work together to manage the Nature Reserve and deliver improvements.
