Beware - it was free and well worth a visit. Have now introduced parking charges for non-members claiming high costs to run the site....which presumably includes a couple of thousand quid to install a payment machine. Still, stock exchange investments only raised three million pound...More

Fowlmere nature reserve is set in the woodlands with water areas covered with reeds. It is perfect for a circular walk of about 2 miles with a couple of hideouts to go bird watching Great day out all year around
