Barwick Pond Local Nature Reserve
Barwick Pond LNR was created in 1994 to provide an appropriate habitat for the rare Great Crested Newt. The site has restricted access to allow this rare species to flourish. The site is small with perimeter hedging and a viewing area from Barwick Road. It is used by local schools and other groups as an educational and environmental resource.
Recently some pretty strange creatures have emerged from Barwick Pond Local Nature Reserve! These newts may look like an alien species but have, in fact, been created by artist Andrew McKeown with help from Stockton's Local Nature Reserves Officer and schoolchildren based at Barley Fields and Myton Park Primary Schools in Ingleby Barwick. Stockton Borough Council's Countryside and Greenspace team initiated the creative project that was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Impetus Waste.
