Visiting Haughmond Hill updated 20 May 2020 

We have reopened our car park. We are sure many people will be keen to get out and about,  so to  avoid crowds,  please be  aware you may need to  be  prepared to make the  necessary  decision  to  turn around  if the car park looks busy, or is full,  and come another time.  

Currently, all our other visitor facilities are closed. We are working hard to find a way to start to reopen our other facilities but will only do so when we are happy that it is safe for our visitors and staff alike and that the social distancing advice of staying 2 metres apart from other people is possible. Please support us as we are doing  our  best  for  you :  be kind to  our  staff  and your fellow visitors.

When you  visit the nation’s forests, remember it is your responsibility to follow the new guidance on  staying safe outside your home. We are cleaning our car parking machines throughout the day but for your own safety please bring hand sanitiser with you to use after touching the machines.  

If you are uncomfortable with the idea of touching the car park payment machines, you may want to consider becoming a member. As well as supporting the forest you will receive a 12 month car park pass. Find out more.
