Coronavirus News - 7th November 2020

Regrettably pubs, cafes and non-essential shops have had to close once again due to the November lockdown. Various hospitality businesses will however continue to provide takeaway meals.

We are very sorry that you cannot visit us at the moment but we look forward to seeing you in December. In the meantime, please contact individual businesses for accurate opening information and future bookings.

Burn Beck Moss nature reserve

It is situated in the low fells above Killington and is easily accessed from the A684 via the minor road (known as the Old Scotch Road) which runs to the east of Killington Lake.

There is a circular footpath running round the reserve. This is mainly flat and has sections of boardwalk. However the path can be very wet and slippery after rain.

The reserve mainly comprises a boggy area which was once a small tarn. Since Cumbria Wildlife Trust acquired the site in 1995 past attempts to drain the area have been reversed to restore the wetland environment. Roe deer, hare, fox heron, snipe, tawny owl and reed bunting are common, while summer visitors include warblers, curlew and whinchat. The area also makes a fine habitat for many insect species.
