No mow May!

24th June 2021

The results of "no mow May". An initiative encouraged by Bug Life. By not mowing grassland it allows wild flowers to grow and encourages wildlife to flourish. With tall grass mixed with wild flowers and trees on each side of the railway cutting it is a perfect habit. This area will be kept wild until late September. Check out other great ideas to encourage wildlife at

  • Amazing - Best day out of our holiday. I would recommend this trip to anyone. It’s such great value for money and honestly such a special day out for all. We will definitely be back!
  • Lovely day out - We decided on a steam train and boat ride day. The train was lovely, and the boat ride was a lot of fun with an entertaining guide, which one of my teenage daughters found hilarious!
  • All lovely - All done very well. Everything clean (train/boats), staff friendly and commentary on the river cruise added a bit of fun. Really good day out, lots of families. Take hats, drinks and dogs! If you have one.
