Snakeholme Pit Butterfly Reserve

This former claypit is owned by Anglian Water and permission is needed from the local branch of Butterfly Conservation to access the site. There is a beautiful meadow area at the south-east end. A sheltered sunny south-west facing bank leads down to a pond, which covers about a third of the site.

Large hedgerows with mature ash and oak trees surround part of the site.

Butterflies: Common Blue, Essex Skipper, Purple Hairstreak, White Admiral.

Moths: Emperor, Rosy Footman, Elephant Hawk-moth.

Other wildlife: The pool supports many species of dragonfly and damselfly as well as variety of aquatic molluscs and other pond-life. This small reserve attracts a notable range of birds including kingfishers and nightingales. Water voles and water shrews both breed here.

Contact Branch for access, owned by Anglian Water, managed by Butterfly Conservation.
