Healey Dell Nature Reserve has long been a beauty spot which is much appreciated by visitors and locals alike. There is a significant archaeological interest, with its links to the industrial revolution and the railways, and this heritage is an integral part of its attraction. Mill lodges and ponds, with wildflower seeding, provide habitats for wildlife and plants such as Orchids and Pink Purslane.
