Subscribing Guardians may visit the two Suffolk Flora Trust Reserves at all reasonable times by the access points described below. However, to provide protection to sensitive flora, the gates to both reserves are normally locked and the reserves are closed to unauthorised visitors.

On Open Days, members of the public are welcome. Trust Guardians are on site to explain flora, fauna and landscape matters to visitors. On these days only, the entrance to both reserves is marked with a Suffolk Flora Preservation Trust banner. Open days are advertised in advance on the website.

Visitors requiring more specific directions than those below may email at least one working day before the proposed visit.

Simpson’s Fromus Valley at Kelsale

The entrance is a small track on the western side of the A12 at the northern end of the A12 Saxmundham bypass. It is only accessible safely when approaching from the south. If approaching from Yoxford, turn in the lay-by at the entrance to Park Gate Farm, opposite the first Kelsale turning from the A12. On Open Days, look for the Trust banner by the track.

A public footpath crossing the northern section of Simpson’s Fromus Valley Reserve provides a right of way through a small part of the reserve, but does not give general access.

Orchid Glade at Hasketon

This is situated on the by-road from Hasketon to Boulge. On Open days, a Guardian will be on duty at the gateway, which will be marked with the Flora Trust banner. Advice will be provided on car parking. Visitors should be aware that the ground surface is irregular.

Group visits
