What to see: Snibston Grange (referred to locally as 'The Grange') is part of Snibston Country Park. It has a late Victorian arboretum with a diverse range of mature native and foreign species of tree, a wetland area with boardwalk, an established wildflower meadow and two well-stocked fishing lakes. The Grange became Leicestershire County Council’s first Local Nature Reserve in May 1993.
Once the gardens of the Colliery Manager, the Nature Reserve is now an important ecological site for wildlife within the Country Park.
