A fantastic post-industrial nature reserve with an explosive history.
Our 36 nature reserves are open, helping you maintain a connection with the natural world. Please note that you should always observe social distancing requirements when visiting these sites and follow the Countryside Code. Our bird-hides are now open but must be used in line with the guidelines on display at each reserve. You can contact us in advance for details if you wish. We are at the Osprey lookout Thursdays to Sundays until the end of the season.
Our reserves staff are now working on our reserves and we hope to soon be able to advertise a series of volunteer activities. Please contact your local Reserves Officer to find out more in the meantime.
