the Natural History of Lightwood
About the event
For most of the 20th century, Lightwood was home to a reservoir and was the source of water for Buxton. In 2004 it was decommissioned and nature was allowed to take over. We explore the hundreds of species that have since colonised the valley, including Bee orchids, the Bilberry Bumblebee, Wall Brown, Golden-ringed Dragonfly and the White-letter Hairstreak.
