Additional Site Details


From King's Lynn: Take the A148 to Fakenham and Cromer and follow this road straight, through East Rudham and past turnings to Dunton. There is a turning to Sculthorpe mill on the right and then a turning to Sculthorpe village on the left, go past these and take the next right (it's a small road almost directly opposite the 2nd turning left to Sculthorpe about 100yds before the bollards). Follow slowly down the track which will take you down to the entrance of the Reserve.


The reserve will be open every day but Mondays and the gates will be locked at all times outside of the opening times. Guided tours need to be arranged with the Reserve Warden.
