We are in the process of making some major long-term improvements to our much-loved Langdon site, including a new, more sustainable Nature Discovery Centre with enhanced facilities, generously supported by postcode-specific funding by Veolia Pitsea Marshes Maintenance Trust. As a result, there will be no central carpark or amenities until spring 2021.
Langdon Nature Discovery Centre is set in a stunning nature reserve of 461 acres which comprises of woodland, meadows, lakes and former plotland gardens. Langdon nature reserve is the largest inland reserve managed by Essex Wildlife Trust. The nature reserve occupies some of the highest land in the county, has some commanding views and offers miles of excellent walks, where an abundance of wildlife can be enjoyed.
We are still running some educational events from Langdon, please visit our facedbook page for full details.
Essex Wildlife Trust is a conservation charity - suggested donation is stated at the welcome desk.
