New play area and trail at Romney Marsh visitor Centre educates and delights

Romney Marsh 

Kent Wildlife Trust has upgraded their Romney Marsh Visitor Centre for all to enjoy and learn more about wildlife, thanks to funding from European Agricultural Funding for Rural Development and Little Cheyney Wind Farm.

A new interpretation trail and play area was installed during lockdown, with the last remaining pieces installed last week, to improve the visitor's experience Romney Marsh Visitor Centre and Nature Reserve. 

The addition of the trail across the site encourages people to explore parts of the reserve that weren’t explored before. As well as giving visitors the opportunity to learn more about the unique landscape and wildlife, from the laughing sound of a marsh frog to some of the rarest species of bumblebees and discover why Romney Marsh is known as ‘the fifth continent’. 

Jake Jones, Visitor Centre Manager at Kent Wildlife Trust said: 

“Since I started working at Kent Wildlife Trust, I have noticed a huge improvement of the area and more visitors enjoying our Romney Marsh Visitor Centre and Nature Reserve, something we are very pleased about as it is such a wonderful area offering a unique habitat and beautiful wildlife. We hope that with the new interpretation trail and play area, we will continue seeing more people visiting the area going forward.”   

Kent Wildlife Trust’s next step is to raise funds to continue this development and improving the area. If you would like to donate towards improving the Romney Marsh Visitor Centre and Nature Reserve, please donate here
