Pleasley Colliery Nature Reserve

This former colliery spoil heap has been developed into an 80 hectare countryside park to include wetland habitat creation, new woodlands and wildlife pools. It is very easy to access from the A617 towards Mansfield from M1 Junction 29 by taking the right access at the roundabout after Glapwell and turning up Pit Lane on the right.
Anyone travelling by bus should alight at the Pleasley Miners Welfare which is close to Pit Lane.
