What's happening with the Discovery Centre?

At the moment, a trench is being dug to provide services to the Discovery Centre. We still expect an autumn opening for the Discovery Centre, although Covid-19 may impact on the timetable for opening.

    Disappointing today that the “ limited access” past the new centre site was actually no access, we walked from Winchelsea and the only sign said “ road ahead closed “ which locals may have understood to mean“ no access at all, please turn left down the last pathway and follow the invisible diversion signs” , but everyone we saw was flummoxed at the absence of at least a path for pedestrians past the non-active site.
    I suggest you improve the information available for walkers and cyclists coming from Winchelsea.
    Lovely that the hides were all open, the light was magical today !

    Hi Nicola
    Thank you for letting us know this. I’m so sorry the signage wasn’t clear and this made things difficult for your visit. I’ve passed your comments on about clearer information, particularly for walkers and cyclists coming from Winchelsea, and new signs have already gone up. I’ve also updated the information on the FAQs to make that clearer. And I’m so happy that at least you had magical light for you visit and could enjoy the hides. This is where we’re updating trench/access info, in case helpful https://ryeharbourdiscoverycentre.org.uk/discovery-centre-project/frequently-asked-questions/build-faqs
    Best wishes, Emma
