How to get here
The nearest train stations are Gainsborough Lea Road and Gainsborough Central. A taxi from either station is then the best way to access the site.
Stagecoach bus service 97 stops at 'The Croft' in Beckingham, the closest stop to the reserve. Alight here and on foot, take the first right (Station Road). Follow Station Road, which becomes Old Trent Road, to the reserve entrance opposite The Old Willow Works.
At the roundabout at the junction of the A631 and A620, take the Station Road exit, signposted Beckingham and Trent Wharfage. Then take the first major right-hand turn (also Station Road) which becomes Old Trent Road.
Parking is very limited, careful parking may be possible close to the reserve entrance, but access by large agricultural vehicles is required 24 hours a day. Alternatively, roadside parking is available towards the Beckingham end of Old Trent Road.
