Our response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation More details

COVID-19 Update

Wednesday, November 4th 2020

In line with government guidelines, from 5th November the outdoor space at the reserve remains open but the need for rigid bio-security measures and a common sense approach to the health requirements of all who visit really must be understood.

The carparks and public toilets are also open but the main area of the Field Centre (including the activity room, shop and kitchen) is closed.

Government guidelines mean that anyone using the toilets must wear a mask and check in to Foxglove Covert LNR on the NHS Track and Trace App or fill in their contact details on the sheet provided. Hand gel is provided in the entrance way.

The two metre rule still applies everywhere on the reserve.


The welfare and well-being of anyone associated with Foxglove Covert Local Nature Reserve is the absolute top priority of the Management Group and Staff.  Access to the reserve and the observance of the government rules by all who visit is mandatory and must be complied with minimising the risk to all comers.

Please enjoy your visit and remember that it is your responsibility to follow the guidance on the new national restrictions.

We are very grateful to all of our supporters for helping us work through these plans, and for their continued loyal support. 

Thank you for your understanding.
