Wrexham quarry to be transformed into a nature reserve

November 26, 2016 by  

Plans are in place to transform an old quarry in the Print company in Wrexham printing services Wrexham area into a fresh nature reserve.

Work on Minera Quarry ceased back in 1994 and now the limestone quarry is likely to be taken over by the North Wales Wildlife Trust (NWWT). The current owner of the excavation is a building company called Tarmac. When the ownership of the quarry is transferred to the NWWT then Print company in leaflet printers printing services leaflet printers from Wrexham could be used to promote more tourism in the region.

Frances Cattanach, the director of the NWWT, explained that the site has an abundance of potential. She said:

“We look forward to working with those in the local community and beyond to make it a place for all to enjoy.”

The site now contains diverse habitats, including an area of grassland which is already rich in flowers. Furthermore, there is some emergent woodland which could harbour birds and animals.

The process of creating the nature reserve has been a lengthy one. Years of negotiations between the NWWT and Tarmac have led to the development of the present opportunity.

The Minera Quarry Trust has played an important role in the discussions so far. The emphasis has been placed on creating a facility for the community. Part of the site has already been declared a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Future generations may benefit from all the hard work which has been accomplished.
