How muddy is it at the moment?

  • Hello I am thinking of coming from Tamworth for a visit tomorrow (Friday) and wondered how muddy the trails were after all this rain? Would I be better to leave it a few days to dry out? Thanks Lisa
  • Hi Lisa.  As the reserve is largely a wooded valley, there is nearly always some mud somewhere, and it rained quite a lot yesterday (Wednesday).

    We always recommend stout footwear, so boots or wellies will make sure that your feet stay nice and dry.

    Definitely worth a bit of mud for a visit to Coombes Valley at this time of year.
