Flanders Moss NNR
We know that recently the track and path at Flanders Moss have not been of the standard one should expect of a top wildlife site. For this we apologize and thank all our visitors for bearing with us. But the good news is that on 5th March work starts to upgrade the road to the car park and improve the path. The track work will take about a week but will mean that the NNR will be provisionally closed for:
Monday 5 March to Friday 9 March.
We apologize for this but by closing the reserve the machinery can work quicker at least it will mean a smoother ride up to the reserve when its done.
The path work which involves replacing the flooded path with boardwalk and other work to improve the surface and raise the flooded boardwalk, will take several weeks. So once the reserve is re-opened parts of the path will be closed up to 23 March but some access will be possible for those wanting their Flanders fix. The path flooding is due to us overachieving with our rewetting the damaged bog surface so in some ways it is a ringing endorsement of our restoration work. All these dates are provisional as the speed of the work is very dependent on the weather.
Thank you again for bearing with us and I look forward to meeting visitors out on the spruced up reserve in the spring and summer.
