No4 bed Development and access

Visitors will know that work started in 2020 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 as the development progresses. Please read our January 2020 Newsletter in the scrolling ‘News Section’ for the latest update. 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 official re-opening which will be announced.
