Swanholme Lakes Local Nature Reserve can be accessed through Hartsholme Country Park. It was formed from a series of flooded sand and gravel pits. After quarrying finished in the 1960s vegetation was able to colonise and this has resulted in a mosaic of different habitat types that are important both nationally and locally in terms of biodiversity, featuring in National and Local Biodiversity Action Plans (BAPS).
