About New Lount Nature Reserve

New Lount Nature Reserve is an old colliery site, the main operations took place between 1924 and 1968, but small-scale excavations continued until 1986. The eastern part of the site is the old colliery yard, which retains many of the features of its oprational days including areas of hard standing and stretches of mineral railway. The large hill at the western end was created when spoil from mining activities was tipped. British Coal remodelled the tip as part of the restoration work and in 1997 it was acquired by Leicestershire County Council who developed it as a nature reserve in conjunction with the Trust. Habitats include ponds, species-rich grassland, scrub and plantation woodland.
