A large Beech tree fell during a storm, blocking the steps beside the crematorium (at the top of the valley)
The tree has now been removed, however repairs need to be made to the steps and handrail, before the path can be reopened. Please use an alternative route.
Vinters Valley Nature Reserve is NOT run by any council, but by a group of dedicated local volunteers, who have formed a registered charity called the “Vinters Valley Park Trust”.
To keep the nature reserve open, as a space for the whole community to enjoy we need your money and support.
You can financially support the nature reserve in a number of ways.
