Updated site closure details

31st March 2020

The Land Trust is working hard to ensure the communities surrounding its 70+ sites still have access to green space for daily exercise during this time. However, it is essential for the health and safety of our visitors and colleagues that we take appropriate measures to comply with government advice during the Coronavirus outbreak.

This is currently affecting many of our sites play equipment and buildings remain closed. For an updated list of closures or alterations on sites, please see below:

From Monday 11 May we will begin reopening car parks.

ALL play areas and play equipment closed

Greenwich Ecology Park – fully closed

Pleasley Pit – all buildings closed (café/visitors centre)

Port Sunlight River Park – all buildings closed (café/visitors centre) Please note: a one way system may be in place. Please look out for signage on site.

Northumberlandia –  visitors centre and car park closed.

Northumberlandia is currently closed with the exception of those accessing it on foot.  The car park remains closed and we ask that people refrain from finding alternative local parking.  We are working hard to find workable ways to reopen the site, at least in part, and currently expect to do so in early June.

We ask that local people accessing the site on foot do so in accordance with the normal rules that apply on site, such as, no bikes and dogs under close control.  We have no litter collection services at present so please take all litter home.  Please also note that there are no toilet facilities on site.

All sites may be affected by a reduced service, meaning bins may not be emptied and grass may not be cut as frequently as usual. Please be mindful of this when using any of our sites. Where possible, please take your litter and dog mess away with you to dispose of at home.

Last updated 27/05/2020

Whilst using our green spaces, please ensure you practice social distancing and keep two metres away from anyone who you do not live with.

Thank you for helping keep these green spaces accessible and usable at this time. We look forward to resuming normal service and welcoming more visitors once safe to do so.

It felt like a really worthy cause and seeing the result of hundreds of young trees planted at the end of a hot day digging was satisfying!
