Things to see and do

Following the historic route of the Mad Brook this small but fantastic site is located to the south of the Town Park at the heart of Telford between Stirchley and Brookside. The sites footpaths lead walkers through flowering wet grasslands, woodland and the two fantastic ponds and link Grange Pool to the north and Holmer Lake to the south. The madebrook pools are fringed with common reed and home to reed warblers, kingfishers and in recent years have been visited briefly by little egret a member of the heron family.  The site is cared for by Telford & Wrekin Council with support from the Friends of Holmer Lake and Madebrook, members of the Telford Green Space Partnership and Strichley and Brookside Parish Council.
