Great Wheelchair Access - A Beautiful Reserve!!!
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Walking Aid, Wheelchair
This Review has been left via Sculthorpe Moors Trip Adviser. I'm so pleased that I stumbled across this Little Gem whilst looking online for reserves with wheelchair access! When we arrived at the visitor centre the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I had my crutches with me as I can't walk very far at all without sitting down, but the staff lent me a wheelchair and let us park further down where the boardwalk starts. The very first birds we saw included 3 beautiful male Bullfinches and 1 female, Blue, Great and Marsh tits, Greenfinches, Chaffinches, Goldfinches, Goldcrests and Nuthatches. The reserve is an enchanting mix of woodland, marshland, rivers, dykes and reeds. It truly is a beautiful place and I can't wait to go back as soon as possible. There are several hides, all wheelchair accessible with large windows low enough so that people can get a good view. There is a Hide 4 meters above the ground. Even this is wheelchair accessible via a long ramp.
Transport & Parking
Two disabled access toilets were very easy to use
I couldn't find anything negative to say about the reserve or the people who work there. The visitor centre is great. There is a shop with a good selection of wildlife books, gifts and a nice selection of quality feeders and bird food.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
I can't wait to go back again and I'm looking forward to experiencing the reserve throughout the four seasons. I certainly recommend anyone who is remotely interested in nature to go and visit this reserve. It is only £4 per adult which in my opinion is extremely cheap. I would have happily paid double that for the lovely day I had.
