Visitor announcement: Sisland Carr car park is closed

We have closed the car park at Sisland Carr as a precautionary measure to reduce the number of visitors to the wood. The closure will only be temporary but aims to ensure that those who visit are able to maintain the required level of social distancing during the current crisis, as advised by the Government.

Getting out into the fresh air brings many benefits for physical and mental wellbeing, which the Government recognises. But if too many people want to visit the same place at the same time, social distancing becomes difficult, if not impossible, and raises the risk of contracting the virus or inadvertently passing it on to others.

As Sisland Carr is a popular destination, attracting visitors by car from far and wide, closing the car park will help keep numbers at a manageable level. And to those that do visit, we ask you to please act responsibly and maintain your distance from others.

Damage wreaked by the storms of 1987 prompted replanting of young native broadleaf species which are becoming well established. The mix of conifers and broadleaf makes for a pleasant walk along easy-to-follow paths.
