COVID-19 Update Monday 12th April 2021

Further to the lifting of restrictions on Monday 12th April 2021 the NOA reserves and car parks remain open to visitors but hides remain closed. We are hoping to be able to open hides to visitors on Monday 17th May 2021 in line with expected changes to government restrictions, and will post further updates on this page prior to the changes commencing.
We continue to thank all our members and visitors for their patience, and for continuing to keep our staff and visitors safe.

Access to Holme Nature Reserves - please read

 Additional local access information:

Please be aware that Staithe Lane at Thornham is closed for repairs and there is currently no vehicular access to the car park. In future there will be width restrictions at the car park entrance so camper vans and larger vehicles will not be able to use it. 

Road repairs will be taking place along Broadwater Road at Holme in preparation for the planned opening of the NWT reserve centre on Monday 12 April, and you may experience delays. 

Please be patient, drive slowly and observe any warning signs.
