About

The aim of this project is to combat the threats from climate change and coastal flooding by recreating the ancient wetland landscape of mudflats and saltmarsh, lagoons and pasture. It will also help to compensate for the loss of such tidal habitats elsewhere in England.

Once completed, this will provide a haven for a wonderful array of nationally and internationally important wildlife and an amazing place for the local community, and those from further afield, to come and enjoy.

Although the reserve is planned to be in development until around 2025, you're welcome to come along and view the progress as each phase comes to life and the marshland naturally regenerates. The current sea wall access along the Allfleets Marsh Trail sea wall is a wonderful place to come to relax and enjoy, whether for walking, cycling, birdwatching, painting, photography or simply taking in the sea air.

Currently we have a bike shelter which also displays posters and information on upcoming events and about RSPB Wallasea Island. At this time we do not have any amenities or visitor facilities at the site.
