Why a Discovery Centre?

The Discovery Centre is needed because, at the moment, we do not have adequate facilities for staff, volunteers and the large numbers of annual visitors we welcome on the reserve, including parties of schoolchildren. 

The nature reserve is vast, and it needs somewhere accessible, that offers shelter in all weathers, and has facilities such as a cafe and toilets, all of which enable everyone to enjoy our reserve, all year round.
