A new place for people - a new start for wildlife

St Aidan’s is not yet an RSPB site, and is currently owned and managed by Harworth Estates (formerly of UK Coal).
Due to a number of issues around land ownership, the car park and visitor centre at St Aidan's are currently closed. Harworth Estates is working with Leeds City Council to resolve the outstanding issues, and once this happens ownership of the site will transfer to LCC. LCC will then lease St Aidan’s to the RSPB and we will take on full management of the site. We will then re-open the car park and visitor centre and have staff and volunteers on site.
In the meantime, we will continue to carry out some habitat management work to ensure the site remains in a good condition for wildlife, until the legal issues are resolved.
St Aidan’s remains open for public access.
We haven't got any events planned here at the moment. Check out our main events pages to find something up your street (or at least quite near to it).
