The Villages of the Yorkshire Wolds

Tophill Low


The Watton Carrs road east off the A164 leads to Tophill Low which is a collection of houses, farms and associated buildings, situated on the western banks of the River Hull,

There is a large water treatment works situated here as well as Tophill Low Nature Reserve and Wildlife Centre.

Yorkshire Water say "Collection, distribution and cleansing of Yorkshires water are major tasks requiring reservoirs, pumping stations and pipelines, sewage and treatment works. Many of our operational sites are renowned by their wildlife.

For more that twenty years Yorkshire Water has been working to protect and improve their nature conservation volumes where possible, we also help people to enjoy them." This has certainly been achieved here as there are more than 175 species of birds to see including the spotted fly catcher, common sand, kingfisher, oyster catchers, grass hopper, warblers and bullfinches to name but a few! There is also a large variety of wildlife to see.

The reserve is so quiet and peaceful it is hard to believe such activity as water treatments works goes on close by. There are a number of areas with names like Burrows Pits, Sand Marshes, North Lagoon and D Reservoir, all with hides. The Yorkshire Wolds has an abundance of beautiful birds and wildlife and this reserve is well worth a visit.
