It has been 3 years in the planning and 18 months under construction, but now the time is almost upon us to open our new aerial walkway, viewing platform and hide. We here at Sculthorpe Moor are very excited by the news and can’t wait to share the experience with you.
Thanks to our valued volunteers, without which this project would not have been possible, we are soon able to offer all our visitors, of all abilities, full access to our beautiful nature reserve.
The walkway has been built on a shallow gradient, suitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs, along a length of 80m leading up to the viewing platform, raised 4 metres above the reed beds.
Following our successful reed bed restoration project, the aerial hide will offer views across the spectacular Wensum river valley and our newly created scrape, which currently has nesting tufted ducks, lapwing chicks, cuckoos, marsh harriers and kingfishers, to name but a few.
