Lower Taddiforde Valley Pond

 Lower Taddiforde Valley Pond

The Taddiforde Valley consists of a series of man-made ponds constructed during the 1960s and 70s, to mimic natural watercourses. The ponds are fed by the Taddiforde Brook and its tributaries.
 
The area is managed sympathetically, with fallen branches left in some areas to promote roosting points for birds. Habitat piles have also been left in selected areas to provide wildlife with sources of food, shelter and hibernation sites.
 
Amphibians such as toads and newts utilise the habitats provided in the valley.
 
If you are lucky you will see an egret in this area.
