Monkton Nature Reserve hope that you like the look and feel of our new Web site theme. We have been taking advantage of the lock-down closure of the Reserve to change the design but not the content of the old site. We also hope to be adding new material shortly.
Furthermore, the Thanet Countryside Trust would like to apologise for the recent extended downtime experienced with our old site owing to issues with our provider.
We are sorry to have to report that as of today (8/6/20), and adhering to current Government guidelines, the Thanet Conservation Trust are still not in a position to open the Reserve to the public.
We would like to thank all our previous visitors, members and friends for their understanding in this matter, as well as the members of our affiliated astronomy group, the Monkton Stargazers.
Any changes to this decision will initially be made via our Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/monktonreserve/
The new flooring in the Field Study Centre is now complete. It covers the entrance lobby, reception area, natural history museum, bird viewing area, main bookshop room and the rear corridor and has made a huge improvement to the environment. We wish to thank all our visitors for their understanding and co-operation during the works, and throughout the on-going subsequent re-organisation of the bookshop.
