As the darker nights arrive opening hours will change.

Flooding and Bridge Closure

The River Soar is prone to flood from time to time, making the area inaccessible and would lead to the closure of the bridge over the River Soar.

Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for flood updates and bridge closure information.
