Celebrate the opening of Lunt Meadows Nature Reserve


Lunt Meadows is a large (90ha) area of arable farmland next to the River Alt on the northern edge of Liverpool.

The Environment Agency is transforming the site into one of the most important wetlands in the region, creating a 30ha reedbed, 30ha of floodplain grazing marsh and 10ha of hay meadows.

The Trust is committed to planting 40,000 reed

seedlings (propagated at Brockholes).

The site will be managed by the Trust as a nature reserve, and is an important link in the chain of wetland sites - Seaforth, Mere Sands Wood, RSPB’s Marshside and WWT’s Martin Mere.

It is an important site for water voles and otters have recently recolonised the River Alt. An archaeological find at Lunt Meadows in Sefton, Merseyside, has unearthed evidence that Mesolithic man may have built settlements.

If proven, it could change the way historians think about how humans lived in the middle Stone Age period.

It was always thought that Mesolithic man was nomadic, yet this site presents the possibility that several families may have lived together in one place.

The discoveries have been dated back to the middle Stone Age (5,800BC) and reveal a floor, timber stakes which would have been part of a wall, as well as flints and other utensils.
