2024 Opening Hours

Volunteering ~ Winter Season 2023/24
Over the winter months we take some time off to rest and restore the land. This dormancy period is also when the site team plan for the spring and summer months. Over winter will be holding occasional volunteer sessions, ensuring the site remains accessible to anyone curious to learn about the Nature Reserve.
