The British Wildlife Centre Nature Reserve was an ambitious project transforming 20 acres of former agricultural grazing land into a wetland, woodland and grassland habitat. It has been carefully landscaped and planted to produce a mosaic of wildlife habitats and food for a huge variety of wild birds, mammals and invertebrates. Work is underway to convert a further 10 acres and so extend this valuable eco-system.

In 2006 we opened the Wetland Boardwalk, which takes visitors into the edges of the reserve and provides wonderful views of a pond and wetland portion of the reserve, as well as the resident and migrating birds and all manner of other wildlife. There are excellent opportunities for photography but plenty of seating if you just want to relax and take in the beautiful natural scene.

Our fully equipped Field Study Centre is now completed and open to schools for practical science topics in the nature reserve. It also makes an ideal meeting or training venue for wildlife and photography groups, who can enjoy ideal 'in the field' conditions provided by the reserve.
