Opening Times & Directions
The nature reserve is open all year round, so you can visit and explore whenever you like! Please adhere to the visitors' code below when visiting our lovely site.
The Environment Centre is open once a month for our drop in/drop off days. You can drop in to chat to our friendly staff, drop off your TerraCycle items or just have a sit down in the garden. If you are interested in bringing in your TerraCycle items please make sure you are on the mailing list. The items that can be accepted are changed frequently and with little notice.
Please keep your eye on our social media and events page for updates and more events.
We encourage all our visitors to come on foot, by bicycle or bus whenever possible. There is a rack where bikes can be locked in front of the Environment Centre, as well as a small car park if it is needed. i-Travel can help you plan your journey without or with a car.
