Ok we will be there I have been instructed!

Is it possible to get escorted onto the reserve if we arrive after 10.00 or do we have to arrive as group?

Saturday 27th August is fast approaching, maybe it’s time to see who is able to attend.
Could you please let me know.

Suggest we meet at the main entrance gate to Catterick Garrison on Ava Road at 10:00 where there is a pull in area before been “escorted” to Foxglove Covert entrance.

The main Web site is at Foxglove Covert Nature Reserve, and the directions can be found here. Directions.

Please remember to have some identification with you.
There is no Cafe within the reserve but there are facilities for making Tea and Coffee, so maybe an idea to bring something to eat/drink with you.

see - we get escorted...its what our taxes pay the military for... THis is a precision photographic field trip!!!

Dave pleased you have been instructed.
Not a problem Dave if you arrive after 10:00, one of the guards will "frog march" you round to the reserve entrance.
