Sat 23 Feb Winter Fun Day - 'Focus on Willow'


Join us for our Winter Fun Day at Magor Marsh. This time we will be having some fun with willow – watch it being woven into baskets and coracle, have a go at making a willow fish and listen to some amazing poetry whilst you toast marshmallows around the fire and make willow charcoal. It’s only £2 per child for so much fun! We look forward to seeing you all there.

Refreshments available and donations gratefully accepted.

Children welcome

Exit the M4 at Junction 23A and follow signs into Magor village on the B4245. On entering Magor continue through the village and then take a turning on the right signposted Redwick. Follow the road round to the right soon afterwards (also signed Redwick), and then follow the road past the ruins of the Priory on your left and over a narrow railway bridge. Turn left immediately after the railway bridge and follow this road for about 400 metres, and the reserve entrance is on the right. Park in the small car park beside the Trust’s Derek Upton Centre (grid ref: ST 428 866). This education centre is used by school groups during term time, but it is not open to the general public except for special events.

From Newport there is a local bus service (Number 61) which stops directly outside the reserve. Other bus services run to Magor village.

Parking: free
