30/03/2020 - To preserve social distancing, we have for the time being closed the internal grazing areas at Elvetham Heath Nature Reserve. The wider nature reserve area, the pond, the surrounding open space and the cycle way remain open, as they are served by wide footpaths where people can readily pass whilst keeping good separation whereas within the internal grazing areas the footpaths are much narrower. To pass safely one has to step off the footpath onto wet ground and in doing so damage the protected areas.
