Work will start on Monday 4th February (weather permitting) to replace the steps on
the Scott Hide with a fully compliant access ramp.
This work is scheduled to take all week during which time the hide will be out of action.
Steps on the Gazeboe Hide will also be replaced but this will only lake one day.
Our apologies for any inconvenience caused during works.
