Stodmarsh Nature Reserve walk at Grove Ferry
A short walk of 1.25 miles (2km). The hard surfaces are well
compacted but with occasional stones up to 30mm. Although most of
the grass surfaces are short and flat, in some locations the ground
is more uneven with rougher grass.
This walk passes through an area of the reserve that used to
flood naturally. In the 1930's and 40's, it was drained to create
turf fields. Since 1995, it has been reverted to wetland and is
managed by Natural England.
There are fantastic views over Feast's Lake and the reedbeds and
if you are lucky you may catch sight of reed warblers, bearded tits
and red buntings.
