This project is now complete. This location is a key destination on the nature trail, where visitors and the local community can rest, take shelter, watch birds and find out more about the natural environment.
The new hide has been designed to have improved access from the wagonway, giving full all ability access, and will be able to accommodate larger groups. It has been constructed to living building principles, using sustainable local timber. A turf roof provides a new habitat for ground nesting birds away from local predators such as otter, and encourages nesting birds.
Interpretation is a key element of the project and includes information on hide and species visiting the site.
