Enjoy pond-dipping - investigate what creatures you can find living in our ponds - you don't need to bring any equipment, we’ll have everything you need.

Pond dipping is really popular and we have limited spaces – if you would like to guarantee your time slot give us a call on 01708 899851 to book, if you turn up on the day we can usually squeeze you in but you may need to wait for a few minutes to start.
