Ashover Rock - local nature reserve
Ashover Rock, or The Fabrick as it's also known locally, is close to the village of Ashover.
It sits on an area of heathland at 299m above sea level. As a result there are excellent panoramic views of the surrounding countryside - on a really clear day, it is possible to see Lincoln Cathedral (with a telescope).
Heathlands are important habitats for a variety of wildlife, and we are working hard to preserve what we have left.
Feel free to wander wherever you like at Ashover Rock − this site has formal Open Access Land designation which means that you have the right to roam.
You can easily find it by following footpaths from Ashover, or by car from Alton Lane.
