A tiny gem in our chain of rich Dearne Valley reserves, Gypsy Marsh is a meadow with fen at one end, dry grassland at the other. Take time to explore and you’ll find beautiful wildflowers including orchids, dingy skipper butterflies, plus birds like yellowhammers and reed buntings.
Gypsy Marsh is open at all times. Dogs are allowed, but please keep them on leads, especially when cattle are grazing.
The reserve is just a five minute walk from RSPB Old Moor, Please refer to the Dearne Valley – Old Moor web pages for further information and ask at the visitor centre for more details.
