I’m pleased to say that we have some very good news to share – we will be re-opening next week, albeit in a limited capacity.
As you probably know up here in here North Lancashire we are currently placed in Tier 3 along with the rest of the county and this does mean that some restrictions will apply.
So, as of Wednesday (Dec 2) the reserve and the main car park will reopen but please note that all hides will remain closed until further notice (this includes the Eric Morecambe and Allen hides so the car park there will remain closed). Visitors will be able to enjoy the spectacular views from the amazing Skytower, which will be accessible.
We're very happy to say that the shop will re-open – so please pop along and get all your bird food supplies plus feeders, gifts and of course we have a terrific range of binoculars and spotting scopes to chose from.
The café too will be open for takeaways, in accordance with tier 3 restrictions, so you’ll be able to warm up with a lovely brew and slice of delicious cake or hot breakfast bun after enjoying time exploring the reserve footpaths!
We will be operating Test and Trace so please make sure you visit the welcome area upon arrival – please note that this is mandatory for all visitors going on to the reserve.
The friendly team at the welcome area will also be able to tell you which routes are open and which facilities are available as well as what to look and listen out for while visiting Leighton Moss.
We do ask that visitors from outside the local area consider staying closer to home at this time. We don’t wish to encourage people to travel here unnecessarily and urge you to enjoy your local green spaces and nature reserves where you live.
We hope that things will ease up in the coming weeks, so please keep an eye on our website along with our Facebook and Twitter pages for details.
In the meantime, keep safe and thanks for your invaluable support during these most difficult of times.
See you soon!
