Reserve closed due to flooding

Following last night’s heavy rain, the Dockens Water burst its banks causing flooding across the reserve and along Ellingham Drove. We have therefore been forced to close the reserve, including all hides and car parks.

Please be advised that the police have closed off Ellingham Drove so if you are travelling in the area, you will need to find an alternative route.

The water may take some time to recede and, with a cold snap forecast tonight, may also freeze over. We will post again to confirm when the reserve is open again, so please do check with us before making a special journey.

Stay safe!
