Sutton Ecology Centre TrailYou can now discover our grounds by following the Sutton Ecology Centre Trail. The trail includes the Nature, Heritage and Sensory aspects of our grounds. You can also pick a leaflet from the dispenser outside The Old Rectory, Festival Walk.
The grounds are open to the public from 9am until sunset, Monday through Sunday, all year round. However, if you are visiting with an organised group, please book in advance as the grounds are used for teaching and volunteering by the biodiversity team throughout the week.
