Seasonal Closures

Ground Nesting Bird Car Park Closures
1st March 2018 to 30th June 2018   

The following car parks will be seasonally closed to help protect scarce or vulnerable ground nesting birds at this important time in their lives.

  • Clayhill, Burley
  • Crockford, Beaulieu  
  • Crockford Clump, Beaulieu
  • Hincheslea Wood, Brockenhurst
  • Beaulieu Heath, Beaulieu

Wildlife and recreational activity will again be surveyed during these closures at these locations.

We hope you can work with us to safeguard this wildlife for our children to enjoy, by using an alternative car park for this short period. Please keep to main tracks and keep dogs under close control wherever you are from March to June.
