Warnham Local Nature Reserve

Warnham Discovery Trail

Warnham Discovery Trail

Horsham District’s parks and countryside sites are vitally important at this time. However, social distancing, as set out by the Government, is absolutely crucial.  As such, Warnham Local Nature Reserve remains closed at present, but we are working to install a new temporary access, and will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.

For additional updates on restrictions and closures across the district, please visit our Coronavirus: Parks, leisure and venues web page


The Warnham Discovery Trail follows the paths and boardwalks that surround the millpond. Packed with information about the wildlife, flora and fauna that call Warnham 'home', you'll uncover tales from the site's history and discover a host of fun facts for adults and children alike.

Younger visitors can brush up on their wildlife skills and earn themselves a Junior Trail Detective Badge when they complete our special activity sheet.
