Newtown National Nature Reserve

Saved from developers in the 1960's by local residents who conducted wildlife studies to prove the importance of the area, it is now a National Trust reserve worth a visit. There's a combination of landscapes to explore including salt marsh, hay meadows and a harbour. Wildlife includes the red squirrel, rare butterflies and a host of birds. There's a free car park, toilets and volunteers to welcome you during high season. Take a look at the National Trust website for further info.
