Beckingham Marshes is a conservation project giving nature a home along the River Trent floodplain. We are working with a local grazier to re-establish the wet grazing marsh habitat lost after World War II. This provides ideal conditions for a host of wetland wildlife – particularly breeding wading birds, such as lapwings and redshanks - but also water voles, dragonflies and damselflies, amphibians and a variety of aquatic plants. In winter the flooded fields also attract wildfowl such as wigeons, teals, gadwalls and shovelers.There is no visitor centre, but The Old Willow Works across the road may be open, depending on volunteer availability. There is a car park there open daily from 9 am to 5 pm.
We're open all day every day. The car park is open from 9 am to 5 pm.
It's free, but donations are very welcome.
No dogs allowed, except registered assistance dogs
