Leighton Moss Closure info

Leighton Moss Closure info
March 21, 2020 10:18AM
The Leighton Moss visitor centre, shop and cafe are now closed to the public in the wake of government advice and RSPB policy regarding Covid-19.

The reserve, including all hides, remain open and we encourage people to enjoy the site and its wildlife during these challenging times.
Please observe the 2m social distancing guidelines while visiting the reserve and when in the hides.

Further details and information here:

Thank you, the Leighton Moss team.

Just my personal opinion here but is it sensible to open the hides? As the reserve attracts people from all over the country there is a possibility of potential widespread distribution of this virus. I'm not intending to scaremonger, it just doesn't seem to be compatible with government advice.

Don't forget: all the visitors will be touching the hide door handles, the window latches, the shelves and the seats.
Anyone going up the raised platform is likely to be touching the handrail and the railing at the top.
Visitors are likely to put their hands in close proximity with their face when using optical and photographic equipment.
Best avoided.
