Willow Tree Fen :: Shared Description

Using land purchased in 2009 the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is seeking to recreate the original undrained wetland of the fens.

The reserve lies to the south of the River Glen, and is crossed along that boundary by the Macmillan way national trail. It is nearly continuous with the Pinchbeck Slipe and Baston Fen reserves, making a continual natural habitat from the A15 to Pinchbeck Bar. The Souther Edge is the pair of drains that form the Counter Drain, and the western end is marked by the old railway bridge that once took the Bourne to Spalding railway across that drain.

There is a small car park at the entrance, but it is possible to drive right through the reserve to the banks of the River Glen, where there is disabled parking and access to a proper visitor centre. Be warned that Counter Drain Road (the method of access to the southern side) is one of the bumpiest in the whole of Lincolnshire.
