Things to see and do at Dawley Hamlets Local Nature Reserve:

The site supports a network of wooded pit mounds, large expanses of open water and includes an extensive network of footpaths with Castle Pool and The Dandy to the north.

There is a collection of pools to the south including Wide Waters, Furnace Polls and The Sprynge Pool to the south west. 

The site supports a diverse bat assemblage with five species known to use the site.

An unnamed pool to the south of Wide Waters supports the only known site in the borough for Mare's-tail, a rare aquatic plant decreasing in range across Shropshire. Furnace Pools is also known to support the largest recorded population of great crested newts in the borough. 

How to get there:

Castle Pool, The Dandy and Wide Waters can be accessed from the small car park at View Road, Little Dawley, TF4 3HR.
