Lakeside Education Centre, Middleton Park (Middleton) (5 comments)
Colour image2005. View of the single storey, brick built Lakeside Education Centre in Middleton Park. From here information can be obtained on Middleton Woods Nature Reserve, covering an area of approx. 80 hectares. The woods were designated as a 'Local Nature Reserve' in 1992 and much work is carried out to maintain the habitats of wildlife and plant species. A large area of the woodland is described as Ancient Semi-natural woodlands. It supports many species of birds, insects, small mammals, trees and wild flowers. In 1998 the area was given the special status of a Scheduled Ancient Monument. There is evidence of medieval mine workings which were operated by monks. Later earthworks and colliery workings date from at least the 18th Century.
