Visitors will know that work has recently started on the improvement of No.4 bed wetland for nature. Due to the use of heavy machinery and earthworks, health and safety concerns dictate that the whole of the bed is officially closed to visitors whilst the development work is in progress. All access is restricted to persons involved in the development and all persons must sign in at the site office on entering and must wear Hi-vis jackets or vests and hard hats for visibility and protection.
Updates on the progress of the improvements will be posted on the Woolston Eyes Facebook pages and the website www.woolstoneyes.com in due course. We ask all our permit holders, wardens and members of the public to please refrain from entering the site, follow the news updates and await the re-opening on completion of this first phase of the improvement work around the end of March 2020
