Branston Leas Nature Reserve is an 82 acre area of land now transformed into a haven for nature and wildlife. The Reserve has been created by Staffordshire Wildlife Trust and St. Modwen together with The Woodland Trust and the National Forest Company. The major project has included the planting of 20,000 trees and 14,000 bluebell bulbs and the development of quiet grassland areas for declining bird species including lapwing and snipe.
