We’re pleased to say that the Fairburn Ings shop is now open again: 9.30am – 5pm, Fridays – Tuesdays. Takeaway refreshments are also being served hatch-style from the visitor centre during these hours. Please note that we will continue accepting card payments only in both the shop and for takeaways.
All visitors coming into the shop will be asked to wear a face covering, and to either use the NHS Test and Trace app to check-in or to leave contact details. We are following strict data protection guidelines, so we will hold personal details securely, only release to the NHS if necessary, and securely destroy after 21 days. Thank you for helping us to keep everyone safe.
