Branston Water Park

Branston Water Park is a premier wildlife site in East Staffordshire. Located just outside Burton off the A38. Branston Water Park was originally an open cast gravel pit and is now home to many species of plants and animals, both common and nationally rare. The reed bed is particularly important to wildlife as it is one of the largest in Staffordshire.
The site is a Local Natural Reserve and has also received the prestigious Green Flag award again this year and has successfully held the award since 2005 in recognition of the quality, cleanliness, safety and wildlife value of the site.
In recent years the site has been improved with better signage, a small visitors centre and ample parking. There is a level path running around the entire site giving excellent disabled access, a children’s play area, toilets and information on the types of birds and habitats that are found at Branston Water Park.
Important roosting site for swallow and sand martin in summer, breeding little-ringed plover, reed bunting pictured and reed warbler.

Facilities - Free Parking, Toilets with separate radar controlled disabled toilet, cafe, small visitor centre, play area, picnic areas, level paths around site, disabled access throughout.
