Group Visits

The Friends of Paxton Pits Nature Reserve offers arrangements for Groups to make your visit as enjoyable and memorable as possible. Please support the Reserve and help us to use our volunteer resources to your best advantage, by sending us the information on the Group Booking Form (pdf, 12Mb) in plenty of time ahead of your planned visit.
For just £2.50 per person, we provide:

A guided walk of approximately 2 hours with local experts* 
(*Optional, but a great way of getting the background story! One or more guides, depending on the size of group. Special interests can often be matched with guides)

Guaranteed availability of all Visitors’ Centre facilities for the duration of your visit (since it is staffed by volunteers, the Visitors’ Centre is not otherwise guaranteed to be open)

Parking arrangements guaranteed (Minibuses and coaches cannot be accommodated unless your group has booked in advance)

Nature Trail leaflet

Special arrangements for members of your Group with limited mobility (e.g. tailored route, RADAR gates)

Self-guiding nature trail quizzes for children in your Group

Spend the rest of your visit exploring the Reserve and, via Public Footpaths, the wider Paxton Pits complex of gravel workings

On receipt of your booking form, we will confirm the booking and arrangements, in writing, within 21 days. If we need any further information, or if there is a difficulty with the date, we will try to contact you by telephone within 14 days of receipt of your booking form.

How to pay? Please pay your guide or the volunteers at the Visitors' Centre at the time of your visit. Please pay by cheque (made payable to “The Friends of Paxton Pits Nature Reserve”), or with cash (we do not have debit/credit card facilities). 

We look forward to your visit!
