Greathough Brook


An opportunity to visit the beaver enclosure in the Forest. Park and meet at the entrance to the enclosure SO 6124 1539. Turn north off A4136 just east of the garage in Brierley, signposted to The Pludds, and continue for 200 m. Pull in at the car park by the metal forest barrier on the left. We are unlikely to see a beaver in the daytime, but we can have a close look at the enclosure and the surrounding area. We may, however, see the dipper. The short walk down to the stream from the gate is slippery, as is the enclosure area itself.  Wellies are recommended. There has also been recent felling, so care is needed.
