Haverton Hole

Haverton Hole is an area of shallow, reed-fringed, freshwater pools lying to the east of Haverton Hill. The whole area now forms part of the RSPB’s new Saltholme Reserve and has been radically improved as part of the Reserve development. It is a key area for breeding Reed Warblers and Cleveland’s first Savi’s Warbler sang from the reed bed in 198?. Marsh Harriers have bred here and other scarce birds recorded include Marsh Warbler, Penduline Tit, Glossy Ibis and Great White Egret.

Access to Haverton Hole is from Haverton Hill or via the access track to the New Scrape (both arrowed on map below). The pools can also be accessed via the track to the scrapyards, though cars are left here at your own risk! There is a sequence of pools and most can be viewed from the elevated vantage points around the periphery.
