In 2019, the National Lottery Heritage Fund invested over £4 million in our vision to create 1,000 acres of wildness, match-funded by Suffolk Wildlife Trust donors and supporters. The two arable marshes we bought have been transformed into a magnificent wetland and we look forward to welcoming huge flocks of wintering wildfowl over the next few months.
We drew up plans for a network of new, all-weather, accessible paths and viewpoints, as well as a sustainable visitor centre offering panoramic views across the reserve.
As the excitement builds towards opening, we are delighted to be able to share with you some sneaky-peeks into how we're progressing. We would have loved to have been able to throw open the doors for a celebratory opening weekend, but with the restrictions around Covid-19, that will have to wait. Until then, we look forward to quietly welcoming you to our new facilities and the amazing wildlife that is already thriving on the new reserve areas. We will keep you up to date online, via email and our social media channels when we have a confirmed opening date.
