Events on our reserve are almost always organised by the Friends Group.

The Nature Reserve walks start from the Scout hut at the Holtspur Top Lane end of Cherry Tree Road.  The Butterfly Walk on 26th June starts from the Holtspur Bottom Butterfly Reserve entrance in Riding Lane - see the Upper Thames Butterfly Conservation website for more information
