Due to Coronavirus COVID19 the Forest Centre and car park will be closed until further notice.

The Millennium Country Park will remain open but the hides in the Wetlands Nature Reserve, our play area and our outdoor seating area are closed.

Please make sure that you are still keeping the recommended distance of 2 metres between yourself and others (not from your household) when out in green spaces.

(UPDATED 29/3/2020)

As per the govenment's latest advice - 

Please use the following guidance in order to stay safe:

  • stay local and use open spaces near to your home where possible – do not travel unnecessarily
  • you should only go outside alone or with members of your own household
  • keep at least 2 metres apart from anyone outside your household at all times
  • gatherings of more than two in parks or other public spaces have been banned and the police will enforce this
  • if you have a garden, make use of the space for exercise and fresh air
  • take hygiene precautions when you are outside, and wash your hands as soon as you are back indoors

Please see the latest government guidance on social distancing.

Please be aware that if you are experiencing symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19) or at risk of severe illness if you catch coronavirus, then you must stay at home. See the latest guidance from Public Health England.

In the best interests of our staff, volunteers and visitors we are cancelling all public events scheduled between now and the end of April, including children’s activities, tribute nights and bird walks – if you’ve bought tickets for these, please don’t call Reception, a member of our team will be organising refunds and will contact you direct. We are also suspending all volunteer activities until the end of April.

We will continue to follow advice from the UK Government and Public Health England, and will keep customers and visitors updated via social media, this website and email.

Thank you for your continued support of the Forest of Marston Vale.

Commercial Director, Grant Sorrell
