Sprotbrough Flash

Picturesque Sprotbrough Flash is one of the richest wildlife sites in South Yorkshire. A mosaic of open water, wetland, woodland and limestone grassland, the site offers a year-round treat for wildlife enthusiasts.

The free to enter nature reserve covers a whopping 28 hectares and is home to grazing animals and walking trails. A footpath follows the Don, taking you past a screen and two bird hides, and you can walk back through the woods.

Access: Public and permissive footpaths. The woodland is not suitable for wheelchair users or pushchairs. The towpath along the river Don is level and accessible for wheelchair users, although it is a fair distance to the bird hides. Both hides are wheelchair-accessible.

Dogs are allowed on a lead.

Sprotbrough Flash is half a mile south of Sprotbrough village.

You can park just off the road on Nursery Lane next to the river - please note that this can get very busy. From here it is a two minute walk along the towpath to the nature reserve.
