Oakhill Nature Reserve is not just a stroll in the woods. From the moment you arrive you are welcomed with all the beauty nature has to offer from various native wildlife to rare Dragonflies and stunning Butterflies.
Oakhill and the associated pools known as the Brickponds, form a gem of a site nestled between the Canal, Port and Railway. It is one of the best Dragonfly and Damselfly sites in Yorkshire and the ever growing wild bird population promotes a healthy and increasing natural habitat. Oakhill is now also home to nationally threatened declining bird species such as the Willow Tit.
With over 200 plant and wildflower species recorded and increasing wildlife residents it makes this site a perfect place for all nature lovers to enjoy for many years to come.
However, many people in Goole don’t know Oakhill exists, and recently with the addition of a new trunk road through to the increasing industrial site on the south side of Goole our site access has been compromised. Thankfully we now have temporary site access and we are dedicated to conserving the site while the local building work continues.
If you are unsure of our temporary access please download our site map, which will give you an overview of the whole reserve and where you are sure to spot some of Yorkshire’s most beautiful fauna and flora.
