About Kelham Bridge Nature Reserve

Created on the site of a former sewage works, Kelham Bridge Nature Reserve is dominated by the River Sence and its floodplain habitats and now has walking trails.

Open water and reedbeds attract wintering and migrant birds and an artificial sand martin nesting wall has been constructed alongside one of the pools.

There is free entry and parking is available if you park at Sence Valley Forest Park, which is about 1km south of Kelham Bridge, or on the grassy area to the right of the entrance gates.

Kelham Bridge is situated in north-west Leicestershire. From Ibstock travel north for about 1 km on the Ravenstone Road and the reserve is on the right behind a sewage treatment works. There is a stile or 'squeeze around' gate post. Please be aware that paths can be boggy in places, and unfortunately our hides are not accessible by wheelchair.
