Brandon Marsh

UK»England»Warwickshire»Brandon Marsh

Once an active sand and gravel quarry, Brandon Marsh is now a tranquil series of pools and wetlands, with nature trails and five bird hides. Depending on the time of your visit you could see migrating waders, breeding warblers or year round residents like kingfisher, coot or moorhen. Covering 200 acres Brandon Marsh is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and nature reserve on the banks of the River Avon. Follow the well marked Onyx Nature Trail which guides you around the wildlife habitats.

There are regular bus services from Coventry to Toll-Bar Island and from Rugby to Brandon Village, but unfortunately no public transport along Brandon Lane itself.


Go to Coventry Station then get a taxi to Brandon (up to £10)


Just off the A45 to the south-east of Coventry. From the Toll-Bar Island where the A45 and A46 meet, follow the A45 away from Coventry for about 200 metres, then turn left just after a 'Texaco' filling station into Brandon Lane. The Nature Centre is about 1 mile along on the right hand side. Just follow the brown Tourist Signs for Nature Centre. Approaching from Brandon Village, follow the road past the 'Royal Oak': the Nature Centre is about 1.5 miles along on the left hand side - again just follow the brown Tourist signs for Nature Centre
