Reserves by name
Due to circumstances beyond our control, Dawnus Construction will be carrying out some essential maintenance works to Ashcott Railway Bridge on behalf of the Environment Agency who manage the main path through the reserve. These works are due to commence on the 4th of January 2016. The works will take approximately 3 weeks. This means that access via the main footpath will not be available during this period. However, the reserve and all other paths remain open as usual and access will be via an alternative signed route along the Glastonbury canal. We regret that this path is unsuitable for disabled and cycling access. During this period, the RADAR key system allowing access to the disabled parking area on the reserve will not be in operation. The Ham Wall team hope that you will continue to enjoy the reserve during this period and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Here you can enjoy a newly created wetland, which provides a safe home for many rare species including water voles and otters. In spring the reedbeds are alive with birdsong and in autumn you can see kingfishers flashing up and down the ditches. Bitterns are seen regularly all year-round. There is disabled access to this reserve by RADAR key. Events are held throughout the year for families and for those who want to learn more about wildlife. Please note that the car park has a 6'6" height restriction.Our future plans involve a new reception building; a play trail at the new 'Mini' Marshes Area; toilets; new two story hide at the north side of the reserve.
Open at all times.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
