We're back again for another FREE Muddy Event...join your young explorers for another exciting adventure! We'll be treating you to our classic craft nature activities and a superb wild shape hunt. After searching high and low for wildlife in all shapes and sizes, you'll have the chance to craft your own nature crown and create a marvellous Muddy Puddles sign! You can even mix and match your treasures to make some truly special shapes. Our friends at Little House of Science have also provided a fun science based activity for you to try out.
Please meet at the entrance to the Moston Fairway nature reserve adjacent to the car park.
This is a free event however booking is essential. Please book one ticket per family.
There is a car park available just off a small residential street, The Links (postcode M40 3NT), which has a path leading directly down into the reserve.
If you take the A62 Oldham Road heading away from the city centre, you then take the A663 Broadway through Moston. There's a left turn onto Nuthurst Road followed by another left turn to get on to a long residential road, The Fairway. A right turn at the mini roundabout a good distance down the Fairway takes you on to The Links. It's a short distance then to our small car park on the right. The path from the car park descends down leftwards then onto the reserve.
The reserve is also easily accessible from the nearby Newton Heath & Moston stop on the Metrolink tramline between the city centre and Rochdale. Exit from the tram platforms onto Dean Lane and turn right taking the road bridge over the tracks. Follow Dean Lan up to just before the railways bridge going over the road and take a right turn into Williams Road. The second left turn is on to The Links, walk along until the road bends to the right where the entrance to the reserve (and the car park) is on the left.
