This is a wonderful place to visit. For such a small area it has a huge amount of nature value. There are bug hotels, pile of stones, bird boxes, feeders and a small wildlife pond. Many birds and bugs on the times I've visited and the stream is a great place to unwind. The centre inside has friendly staff and plenty of information for anybody wanting to volunteer or learn about nature. The next time you are in town doing shopping I'd recommend making a small detour and have a look around. Not sure of there opening hours, think it is Mon to Fri only.
Excellent venue to learn about Wildlife and tour Environment
A lovely spot off the city centre. A display of information boards inside and a water wheel and river outside. Very peaceful spot.
Couldn't go in but really enjoyed a close examination of the machinery of Cricklepit Mill.
These guys do amazing work. It was only until I spent some time talking to one of the Reserve managers that I realised quite how in-depth and important their work is. Definitely a charity worth supporting!
Really disappointed to arrive and find it is closed for visitors. It would be helpful to put on the website that it is only open for working staff. It just says it is open 9-5 on anything I could find.

I used to be a subscriber, but after a disgraceful display at an agricultural show I have cancelled my subscription. A gentleman with his young child stopped at a DWT stand and enquired about the beaver reintroduction. When he asked how the beaver population was to be monitored and potentially controlled, an aggressive DWT rep completely flew off the handle. Fair play to the gentleman for keeping his cool as she ranted and raved, fortunately another DWT rep ushered her away and an amicable conversation was able to follow. However, if DWT will put forward such maniacal staff to man their stands, they won't be getting another penny out of me.

Lovely place walk through the wood and may see a deer or two. Then you can have something great to eat and drink.
