Holme Park Quarry Local Nature Reserve (LNR) is a small but key part of limestone landscape that occupies much of the land from Farleton Knott to the north to Lancelot Clarke Storth and Plain Quarry in the south, and to Hutton Roof in the east.

The quality of the limestone pavement and the role of the sites for butterflies in particular, make this whole area significant for both wildlife and geology.

Much of the land is now designated as a series of nature reserves.

Management Changes

Cumbria Wildlife Trust have offered to take over the Reserve, as Cumbria County Council withdraws. The details are being finalised.
