About the reserve
Willow Tree Fen is a new nature reserve purchased by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust in 2009. Formerly arable land growing beans and cereals with a number of low depressions that become waterlogged in wet periods, the fen is being restored to a typical wet fenland landscape.
The nature reserve will include a mixture of reedbeds, shallow meres, seasonally flooded pastures and hay meadows, providing habitats for rare and threatened wetland species such as otter, water vole, hairy dragonfly, spined loach, redshank, snipe and marsh harrier.
Please visit our main Willow Tree Fen page for further information.

PLEASE NOTE: Emergency gas works are currently taking place at Willow Tree Fen. The seasonal route through the meadow is currently closed, but all other routes remain unaffected. Parking in the first car park is limited to 2-3 vehicles, but the bottom car park is clear. Apologies for any inconvenience.
