About the event

Take yourself on a self-guided tour of the beautiful Bystock Pools nature reserve as part of Heath Week 2021. You can either follow the posts around the reserve, finding information to help you answer the 20 question quiz, or join in online using ‘Kahoot’ on a smartphone to keep track of your scores as you go round and explore or challenge your friends.

The walk starts at the top of the meadow by the North entrance. You don’t need to download the Kahoot app to take part - just enter the short address and pin that will be on the sign when you get to the start of the trail.

Please note that the car park at the reserve's north entrance is currently closed, but the pedestrian entrance is open. The nearest car parking is along Wright’s Lane or along the road towards Frying Pans and Wheathill. Parking is available in the road at the south entrance by the reservoir (OS map SY034 843).
