Enjoy your visit to Eye Town Moors, there are 14 acres to visit and explore, walk, run, watch birds and enjoy nature as it is meant to be. Respect all the Flora and Fauna, animals and birds in their habitat. Visit this ever changing landscape in all seasons you will be amazed by this living woodland.
Wooden foot bridge leads from the playing fields into the Eye Town Moors wetland area, please use the footpath to enjoy your visit.
A network of drainage dykes link together to drain the area and control the water levels in the wet season. The dyke provides habitat for many amphibious creatures while also providing drinking water for farm livestock.
Here you can sit and watch the water and a wealth of wildlife. See what amazing wildlife arrives at the pond while you watch. Pop a picture onto our Instagram account for comments and reaction.
Fallen trees are left for a reason they are not just dumped in a heap. This habitat is ideal for all sorts of insects and wildlife. Hedgehogs will root around and feed, birds will feed on grubs and insects.
Willow trees not only look pretty they are part of the environmental system draining vast amounts of water from the soil. Each year the willow trees are pollarded and the new growth is removed.
The years growth is used in traditional country crafts from weaving fencing panels, baskets for bikes and shopping and an array of other products.
The Eye Town Moors need volunteers of all ages to maintain the trees, vegetation and work on exciting projects like the meadow picnic area and extending board walks for pushchair and wheelchair access. No experience needed on job training will be on offer so you learn as you work.
Please note that the Volunteer Day is held on the Third Sunday of each month meeting at Eye Town Moors 10.00 am and the contact person is: Chris Willoughby call 01379 870298. Please arrive dressed for the environment and ready to work on this wonderful woodland experience.
