Apart from the stunning wildlife, the reserve has a moodier side. Look to the northwest from Haverton Hole pools and you’ll fail to notice the industrial horizon of Teesside. Chemicals and bridges are what made this corner of northeast England. Travel across any great bridge in the world and the likely hood of a Cleveland Bridge stamped on its girders will be high. A unique juxtaposition of amazing birds and special animals like hares and voles to concrete and dockyards.
