Avalon Marshes response to Covid-19

By now we are all aware of the severity of Coronavirus and the impact it is having on our lives.

We wanted to let you know how are dealing with it at Avalon Marshes.  Safety is our top priority and we are closely monitoring Coronavirus (Covid-19) updates in order to act quickly, and are following government advice.

Update 5 November:

In line with Government guidance Shapwick Heath NNR and its associated car parks are open to visitors, but the hides remain closed.

The Marshes Hub Tea Stop cafe at the Avalon Marshes Centre is open 10am – 4pm for takeaway only, seven days/week.  The public toilets are open during cafe opening hours. The Gallery and visitor information point are closed until further notice.

At RSPB Ham Wall, the car park and toilets are open, with takeaway refreshments available at the visitor cabin.  Hides are closed.

Somerset Wildlife Trust’s Westhay Moor and Catcott reserves are open, but the hides are closed.  Please do not park on the roadsides around any of our reserves as this blocks the road for local people and businesses. We may also need access at any time, and must ensure emergency vehicles can gain access.  No SWT reserves have toilets or serve refreshments.
Please see the individual partner organisations’ social media and websites for further details.  Thank you
