Tophill Low Nature reserve is an active Yorkshire Water treatment works built in 1959. It formally opened as a nature reserve in 1993 and features 12 hides spread across a 300 acre site that flanks the river Hull.
Spend the day wandering through the woods, wetlands and grasslands marvelling at all kinds of wildlife, from otters to dragonflies.
5km of surfaces paths make it accessible to all users.
We recommend bringing lunch with you as the nearest town is nearly 10 miles away. Please note dogs are not permitted on the reserve nor are to be left in cars.
Top tip – pond dipping equipment available and great nature walks. If you are lucky you may get to see the resident snake! Occasional open days where more going on
