Situated right at the heart of the Dearne Valley, Old Moor is a wonderful place to come and watch wildlife. The skies, fields and open water are teeming with birds throughout the year.
In the summer the grasslands are ablaze with butterflies and orchids, and you’ll be able to see newly-hatched ducklings. In winter the reserve is an important stopping-off point for ducks, geese and swans – plus 8,000 golden plovers!
There are lots of events, guided walks and family activities, as well as home-cooked food in the café and a well-stocked shop. The reserve is a great day out for young and old alike.
Plan to spend up to three hours for a good visit to the reserve, or longer if you want to sample our home cooking in the café. All paths are accessible, but sensible shoes are best to make the most of your walk around the reserve. Whilst we do have shelter in the hides, the shop and café, it is advised to bring a mac if the weather looks inclement.
