Our Aim
It is our aim that in fifty years time Holme Park Quarry LNR will have an area of wooded limestone pavement and a mosaic of open stands of gorse, bracken and limestone grassland. Stands of gorse will have a ground flora of limestone grassland, whilst areas of bracken will have abundant violets but little grass.

At least 20 species of butterfly will regularly be present on the reserve, including High Brown Fritillary, Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary and Dingy Skipper.

A good range of bird species will breed in scrub and woodland on the reserve, including Bullfinch, Song Thrush, Spotted Flycatcher, Green Woodpecker and Woodcock.

The boundary of the reserve will have been extended to include the triangle of land to the South East corner of the current reserve boundary.

The reserve will be regularly visited by school parties, whilst an active group of volunteers will carry out reserve management and record the wildlife present.
