Summer 2019 Closures - National Grid Project
Due to refurbishment work by the National Grid, on their electricity transmission line that runs into Macclesfield, there will be significant disruption / closures of several sections of the Middlewood Way & Jacksons' Brickworks during June, July & August.
The car park and nature reserve will be closed between the 24 June and 30 August, 24 hours a day. The car park will be used to store materials and site security teams will be based there. There will be no access to The Middlewood Way from the car park during this closure, however the Middlewood Way will still be able to be accessed from Poolhouse Road directly.

About Jacksons' Brickworks Local Nature Reserve
Jacksons’ Brickworks in Higher Poynton is a special place, reclaimed by nature after its industrial interlude. It is now so valuable for wildlife that it has been designated a Local Nature Reserve (LNR). The 9½ hectare site is managed as a mosaic of different habitats including Wetland, Grassland, Semi-natural Woodland and scrub.
It is especially important for the great crested newt, a species protected under European law.
To find out more about the site, how it is managed and the latest site news please see the Jacksons' Brickworks activities and information page.
