Currently, the wetland remains closed to the public on health and safety grounds. This is because several of the boards along the boardwalk which runs through the wetland have failed and could be dangerous if walked on.

Several quotes had been received for the replacement of the boardwalk. Unfortunately, these quotes were far in excess of what the parish council had originally expected any work to repair or replace the boardwalk to cost and it does not have the money available.

In the meantime, the parish council is continuing to investigate grant funding opportunities for financing the repair/replacement works. Sadly, the wetland will have to remain closed until such time the boardwalk can be made safe.
