Footpath Closed
Warning Triangle

Due to health and safety reasons, the main footpath from Netley Close to the valley floor is currently closed.

This is due to a major split in the trunk of an ash tree, located very close to this footpath.

Until a tree surgeon can safely fell the tree, the path will remain closed. A diversion is in place and signs posted.

Please use the other footpaths.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your co-operation.

To keep the nature reserve open, as a space for the whole community to enjoy we need your money and support.

You can financially support the nature reserve in a number of ways.
