Teachers – Book Your Spring and Summer Day Visits Now!

March 14th, 2017

The days are getting warmer and it’s time to start looking ahead to the summer term. Our day visits are booking up fast, but there is still time for you to plan an unforgettable trip for your class.

We offer a range of activities. The most popular include:

Pond Dipping Getting up close to the creatures that live in our dykes.

Nature Trail  A walk around the reserve looking at several different habitats and thinking about the plants and animals that live there.

Toad Hole Cottage Museum Children step back in time when they go into our Victorian marshman’s cottage museum.

Thatching a hands on experience giving children a chance to work together and get to grips with this traditional craft. (Suitable for year 2+)

Environmental Art getting creative and making woodland masterpieces.

Hawks and Blackbirds– A dynamic educational food chain game giving children a clear understanding of food chains and predator prey relationships.


This year we are luckily enough to have the Wherry Hathor with us during June and July and we will be offering ‘Local History’ days including going aboard Hathor, a visit to Toad Hole Cottage Museum and thatching.
