The reserve is currently closed due to ongoing flood risk. We're hoping to reopen it in Spring 2020.
Located north of Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire, Tophill Low Nature reserve is an active Yorkshire Water treatment works built in 1959. It formally opened as a nature reserve in 1993 and features 12 hides spread across a 300 acre site that flanks the river Hull.
Spend the day wandering through the woods, wetlands and grasslands marvelling at all kinds of wildlife, from otters to dragonflies.
The two reservoirs - 'D' and 'O' dominate the reserve and have SSSI status for their massive wildfowl numbers. Around the perimeter a network of marshes, ponds, woodlands and grasslands result in an annual 160+ bird species, with over 60 readily visible even in mid winter.
We recommend bringing lunch with you as the nearest town is nearly 10 miles away. Please note dogs are not permitted on the reserve nor are to be left in cars.
Concessions: £1.80 (16 and under / 65 and over / registered disabled).
