Hassacarr Pond

As the name suggests, much of this nature reserve is occupied by a large pond thought to date back to the last glaciation. The rest of the site comprises alder woodland, a meadow and other smaller ponds. The ponds are home to the greatcrested newt, the largest newt found in the UK. The reserve is a great place to see a variety of dragonflies and other pond flora and fauna including the rare tubular water dropwort.
