Site Description
UK ECN site. Bradgate Brook (a small stream) is located in the Charnwood Forest area of Leicestershire important for its precambrian rocks (granite). The stream flows through the ancient parkland of Bradgate Park and into Cropston Reservoir. The park is managed as a deer park, has never been agriculturally "improved" and is designated an SSSI. However it was bequeathed to the people of Leicester for their enjoyment and pressures on the site relate to public access. There are no discharges to or abstractions from the brook which supports an invertebrate community of regional importance, including a population of native crayfish.
