This is a really great nature reserve! It's sign-posted on the roads and pretty simple to get to. Fair amount of car parking spaces. It's free to park too. There's a nice little visitor centre, handy for picking up a map and also for toilet...More

Spent an hour or so walking round the 2 lakes, wide well maintained gravel paths lead from the free parking area back to the visitors centre. The visitors centre has lots of local information and has clean toilets. There are areas around the lakes that...More

It's a pleasant walk round, not a lot to see, certainly would not travel any distance to come and visit.

First time visit and pleasantly surprised at the natural beauty. Walked around the two lakes on paths that are easy to negotiate flat and stoned. Saw lots of birds and dog walkers pity the reserve centre was not open. Free car parking was a bonus...More

Longton Brickcroft is a regular favourite, offering short circuits of two lakes with good views. There is also a good visitor centre with wildlife information. The Brickcroft is a beautiful safe environment to explore with young children who love the opportunity to hand feed robins,...More

Since discovering this little gem we have visited numerous times. Never had a problem parking, always managed to snag a space. There are a couple of picnic tables should you wish to have a picnic. A small visitor centre which opens mainly afternoons. We picked...More

Always some birds to admire. Great walking round both ponds. Plenty of benches to sit along way. They have put doggie bins now along way.

I'm biased because I'm Longton born and bred but this is my favourite place in the whole world to just walk around and relax. In summer when the sun's out it's so pretty and the wildlife is really nice. It's just so peaceful.

I can only say children can hide in the small picnic areas as you go through the gates. But there are a lot of small ponds so you would need to be aware. Brickcroft is not the place to let children run off on their own... More
