Made up of a beautiful mature oak woodland, Nagshead Nature Reserve plays host to a variety of bird species, making it the perfect day out for any wildlife enthusiasts throughout the year. See if you can spot pied flycatchers in the spring, woodpeckers in summer, nuthatches in autumn and goshawks over winter!
Darkhill Ironworks, and the neighbouring Titanic Steelworks, are internationally important industrial remains associated with the development of the iron and steel industries. The world's first tungsten steel were produced here, with the ironworks dating back to 1811 and the brickworks being established some time before 1818. The complex of tramway, brickworks and ironworks lie on a series of terraces above one another on the hillside, resulting in a fascinating landscape to visit.
Formerly the site of the New Fancy coal mine, come and see the spectacular views that the old spoil heap now provides. The viewpoint is an ideal place to watch birds of prey soaring above the woodland.
