Two miles south of Bridgnorth, Eardington Nature Reserve is a 7 hectare (17 acres) former sand and gravel quarry with a unusual mix of habitats.

It is situated just off the B4555 Highley Road near the village of Eardington, WV16 5LF.

Free car park off the B4555 is available all year round (car park locked at 6pm in summer and 4pm in winter).

The site is being developed by the Friends of Eardington Nature Reserve, working with Shropshire Council, for the benefit of the local community and to enhance the local biodiversity.


Things to see and do

  • Take your binoculars and camera and see if you can spot some of the rare wildlife on site.

  • Use the site as a starting point for a longer walk. All stiles on footpaths within the parish of Eardington have been replaced by kissing gates to make walking in this area easily accessible for everyone.




As this is a nature reserve and not a country park, to minimise disturbance to wildlife please note that dogs are prohibited between the months of March and August and must be on a lead at all other times.
