Visiting Rosliton Forest

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 and come another time.  Please don't park on the roadside and verges outside the car park as this endangers other road users. 

Currently we have limited services available as we have only opened the ones where 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.  

Please read the guidance: Covid-19 Information for everyone visiting a forest
