Rutland Water Nature Reserve reopens with social distancing to prevent the spread of coronavirus
Rutland Water's Nature Reserve reopened yesterday (June 22), with signs and measures in place to help people social distance.
The Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre at Egleton is now open daily from 9am to 5pm, and the visitor centre at Lyndon will be open except on Mondays.
In both visitor centres queuing and one-way systems are in place, with a limited number of people allowed in the buildings at one time. There is no seating in the centres to make additional space for social distancing.
Hand sanitiser is available in the visitor centres but people are encouraged to bring their own for touching stiles and gates, and visiting the hides.
There is also a reduction in capacity within all hides, and hide windows and doors are fixed open to limit touch points.
The Waderscrape and Teal hides will remain closed, but the car park gate and the side gates will be open.
