Holmer Lake with Kemberton Meadow and Mounds

Holmer Lake with Kemberton Meadows and Mounds

In September 2022, Holmer Lake, Kemberton Meadow and Mounds were identified as a future Local Nature Reserve in the Telford and Wrekin Borough.

The site covers an area of 29 hectares in total. Holmer Lake is a reservoir owned by Severn Trent Water to serve Telford and the surrounding areas. The land around Holmer Lake includes areas of woodland and grassland. Kemberton Meadows and Mounts is located between the A442 Queensway and Halesfield industrial estate, Southeast of Holmer Lake. The site is comprised of grassland, scrub and wooded pit-mounds.

The Kemberton and Halesfield collieries were once active in the area during the industrial revolution but have long since closed.

Water safety

We want everyone to be safe when visiting our sites that have water features within them. 

We work closely with the Royal Life Saving Society on managing water safety on our sites and further details on advice can be found on the RLSS website.

When visiting this site, here are a few tips to keep safe around the water: 

  • keep out of the water at all times 
  • never allow children to play near the water unless accompanied by an adult 
  • don't run near the water, you may trip and fall in 
  • learn how to help in an emergency; if you see someone in trouble in the water never jump in yourself. Stay calm and phone for help. Some sites across the borough have water safety sites and equipment, please only use the equipment when required. 

For more information on how to rescue a person from drowning please visit the RLSS website.
