Event description
TWO TREE ISLAND and OLD LEIGH - NATURE, COAST and CULTURE

About this Event

FREE FOR FAMILY CARERS

(meet other carers / bring a companion / the person you care for*)

Join us in the Great Outdoors to explore the history and culture of Old Leigh (with refreshments and ice cream included, of course!) and a walk on the stunning Two Tree Island Nature Reserve.

"In Old Leigh, down by the cockle sheds on a sunny, summer’s day, visitors to the town can enjoy picture postcard riverside views of the mudflats and creeks, looking beyond to the deeper waters of the Thames. In essence, Leigh has been a fishing community for more than 1,000 years and this heritage remains very much at the heart of the old town today." (Essexlifemag.com)

Two Tree Island: "During the summer months the site is brimming with rare insects and butterflies, including the incredibly rare Shrill and Brown-banded Carder Bee and wonderful Butterflies like Marbled White and Essex Skipper. Look to the skies and you’ll often see Kestrel hovering over the reserve looking for Field Voles." (Essex Wildlife Trust)
