One of the smallest nature reserves in Britain - a hidden gem in Aldershot.

Situated off Boxalls Lane, in Aldershot, Brickfields Nature Reserve is a small and peaceful place to visit.

Reclaimed from the remains of a Victorian brickworks and clay diggings, it is less than eight acres in size, making it one of the smallest in the country, but well worth a visit.

Brickfields Nature Reserve offers:

  • A peaceful, natural setting
  • A pond with wildlife and plant life
  • Annual family summer event organised by the Friends of Brickfields Nature Reserve

The main car park is signposted off Boxalls Lane.

There are no public toilets - the nearest are at Manor Park.

You can find more information about the nature reserve, including its wildlife and plants, on the Brickfields Nature Reserve website or Brickfields Nature Reserve on Facebook.


You can get involved in helping to maintain Brickfields Nature Reserve.

The Friends of Brickfields Nature Reserve group runs work parties on the first and third Sunday of the month. You don't need any special skills to take part, just some strong footwear. You can find dates and times of work parties on the Brickfields Nature Reserve website.

The Friends formed in 1992 from a group of residents, who wanted to help improve the nature reserve. The group operates under licence from Rushmoor Borough Council and carries out various tasks, from clearing rubbish to building new paths.

The group is affiliated to the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership.
