These flooded clay pits are now managed by the National Trust as a wildlife reserve. There is a carpark and pleasant walks around the lakes on the south side of Victoria Road. 

If you head from Ballyhalbert towards Kircubbin, you will pass the Glastry Nature Reserve on the left hand side of the road. It consists of several lakes formed by digging clay for the nearby Glastry Brickworks. The site is approximately 40 acres.
