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.
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. A footpath follows the Don, taking you past a screen and two bird hides, and you can walk back through the woods.
The woodland is not suitable for wheelchair users or pushchairs. The towpath along the river Don is level and accessible for wheelchair users and pushchairs, although it is a fair distance to the bird hides. Both hides are wheelchair-accessible. Dogs can be walked here on leads.
