Wet and Wild!

Wednesday, October 2nd 2019

Yorkshire has had more than its fair share of rainfall over the last few days and this has had a huge impact on the series of ponds and lakes all over the reserve.

The cascading ponds at the head of the lake have been quite spectacular!

It is good to see that the newly renovated dams have stood firm as have the boulders that were added by volunteers at the base of each one.

The roar of fast running water could be heard almost everywhere, here is the outflow from the main lake.

Risedale Beck has also been very high but fortunately, so far there has been no real damage to any of the footpaths and bridges.

Christmas Elf Trail

Saturday 5th December 2020 | During opening times

A self guided trail around the Red Route (pushchair and wheelchair friendly) to look for natural clues. Help Edward the Elf to find all of the ingredients for his magic potion and learn some fun facts along the way. He needs lots of items including twigs, feathers and autumn leaves.

No need to book as this is a self guided activity, just pick up a clue sheet from the Field Centre (only 50p) and bring your own pencil from home to tick of the items when you see them. If you spot Edward the Elf on your way around then please take his photo and upload it to our Facebook page!
