Staying safe

We are operating one way systems in visitor areas to manage visitor flow and maintain social distancing. Look out for signs that explain any changes to the way you access different parts of the site. There are pinch points on the reserve where care must be take and only one person at a time can pass through such as the cattle grid gates. If you're showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please don't visit.
