Welcome to the Lower Ure Conservation Trust’s website.
LUCT is a small charity but with big successes; working hard to promote and support our local wildlife, whilst thinking big landscape scale. We manage Nosterfield Local Nature Reserve, generally acknowledged as North Yorkshire’s premier wetland grassland nature reserve.

We are closing this weekend

Because of the disruption predicted resulting from le Grand Départ, which will be passing very close to the reserve, we have decided to close the reserve for the weekend.

The reserve will close from late afternoon on Thursday July 3rd. We hope to partly open the car park late next week. The footpath remains open.

Please refer to our Twitter feed for regular updates.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
