Reserve Open Again

The Reserve closed on Sunday 20th February 2022 due to flooding, but is open again from 24th February 2022 – see more on the News page.

Opening Hours & Exceptional Closures

The Reserve is generally open to members during daylight hours at any time, but there are days when we have to close it for safety reasons.

This might be because major maintenance work is being undertaken, or because the river is very full and flooding is possible. It is sometimes because the Hunt is operating in the area. You can find information about closures on the News page.

Signs are provided at the entrance to the Reserve, giving advance notice of the days on which it is not accessible. The Reserve might also be closed for urgent and unforseen reasons, and in those circumstances we cannot provide members with advance notice.

Thursday Volunteers

The Volunteer Team is on site each Thursday, undertaking management tasks. Where work is under way, there may be areas of the Reserve that can’t be accessed; and the Reserve may not be as peaceful as normal.
