Rodley Nature Reserve is designed to bring wetland wildlife back into the Leeds area.

Created on floodplain in the Kirkstall Valley, a recognised 'flyway' for wildfowl and waders on migration, the wetland habitats constructed here will complement the nearby River Aire and the Leeds & Liverpool Canal Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The existing wildlife of the area is not forgotten. The wetlands are enhanced by the surrounding scrub, woodland and grassland. Birds, in particular will benefit from the increased habitat diversity of the area.

This web site is under construction but we can let you have a look at how the reserve is developing
