Avalon Marshes response to Covid-19

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 22 Aug 21:

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

The Marshes Hub Tea Stop cafe at the Avalon Marshes Centre is open 10am – 5pm, seven days/week with outdoor and indoor seating.  The public toilets are open during cafe opening hours. The Gallery is also open seven days/week 10am – 5pm.  A visitor information desk, staffed whenever possible, is located within the Gallery.

At RSPB Ham Wall, the car park and toilets are open, including takeaway refreshments from the visitor cabin at weekends. Hides and trails are also open again.

Somerset Wildlife Trust’s Westhay Moor and Catcott reserves and hides are open.  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
