Walsey Hills Reserve

Directions

Walsey Hills is situated on the A149 midway between Cley-next-the-Sea and Salthouse. See map opposite. The reserve is signposted. Grid reference: TG062442.

Parking is available on the roadside adjacent to the reserve, and sometimes in the small NWT car park at the south end of the East Bank. The nearest toilet facilities are about half a mile away at Cley Marshes NWT Visitor Centre on the A149, which can be reached via the NWT’s permissive footpath from the East Bank.

Please be aware that this is a hillside site, and wheelchair access is not feasible. The visitor centre is reached by a flight of 46 wooden steps; the gradient of the steps is relatively gentle, and there are two landings, each with a small bench on which to rest. There is a further flight of 13 steps to reach the hide.

There are no rights of way on any part the reserve. Visitors are asked not to cut through between the surrounding public footpaths – not only does this damage our fences, it also disturbs the vegetation which provides shelter for the birds and other wildlife which make use of the reserve.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL NOT TO DISTURB ADDERS – THEY ARE POISONOUS AND WILL BITE IF PROVOKED!
