Wainfleet Wetlands Conservation Area

Thriving biodiversity in a former clay and limestone quarry

The Wainfleet Wetlands Conversation Area is a truly unique ecosystem. Situated on a former clay and limestone quarry, the area offers the opportunity to see fossils leftover from the water that covered the area 300 million years ago. Today the area is full of fascinating wildlife, has several large ponds and meadows and is very popular with bird watchers.

While there are no trails or facilities within the area, it’s still a great spot to relax, enjoy the sun and observe the local flora and fauna. The abundance of fossils from the Paleozoic Sea make a great reason for a family outing to the Wainfleet Wetland – just remember not to remove any.

Beautiful early November afternoon. Easy hike around the lake, about 3 miles. Sat on the rocks and enjoyed the quiet. Bushes of rosehips. Interesting fossils. Will definitely be back to enjoy seasons...
