Blackburn Meadows is home to an amazing variety of wildlife. The tranquil lakes attract hundred of birds, while the surrounding grasslands are full of butterflies. The Reserve is a firm favourite with families who come here to picnic or just to unwind and enjoy the peace of nature. Why not make it part of a longer walk along the canal or the river? Few would believe that there could be a nature reserve here, in the middle of the industrial area between Sheffield and Rotherham. But once you have seen Blackburn Meadows for yourself, you will agree that there is no better way to escape the stresses of urban life without leaving the city.
