Arthur Jacob Nature ReserveThe Arthur Jacob Nature Reserve

The wetland reserve is owned by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and is situated adjacent to the Colne Brook river in the village of Horton.

The site covers 4.6 hectares and has been created following gravel extraction from the previously derelict land.

There are four lagoons, some with islands, and the site has been extensively planted with trees, shrubs, wildflower meadows and aquatics. Dipping platforms and a bird hide are provided.

The site has been open to the public since May 1996.

Pedestrian access is from Poyle Poplars Community Woodland, Stanwell Road, where a small car park is situated.
