Diverse landscape providing major east-west flyaway for migrating birds

Located on the south bank of the Humber Estuary, the pits and reed-beds along the Humber bank are the result of the tile and cement industry between 1850-1959.

As a result of the Wildlife Trust’s management, today the reserve is rich in abundant wildlife and hosts one of the UK’s bittern strongholds after twenty-one years of their absence. Discover the popular double decker bird hide at Ness End Farm for excellent views and enjoy three relaxing way-marked circular walking routes.
