As we move into Spring and some lockdown restrictions ease, we’re pleased to have some visitor facilities open again in the Aire Valley.

Both Fairburn Ings and St Aidan’s are open for local exercise and recreation, in line with current guidelines – please continue to avoid unnecessary travel, and enjoy your local nature reserves and green spaces.

We want everyone who is able to visit us to be able to do so safely and comfortably, so please follow all current Government guidance around face coverings, social distancing, group sizes and hygiene as well as following signage on-site.
