The wildfowl gardens at Claythorpe Watermill are lovely. One of the most enchanting visitor attractions in Lincolnshire, we're an easy drive from Skegness, Mablethorpe, Louth and Grimsby. Our gorgeous former watermill is home to scores of native and exotic wildfowl, pheasants, peacocks and owls, a breeding family of otters, not to mention our marmosets and wallabies. There's room for children to play, and no rush if the grown-ups want to unwind. Admission fee allows you to come back as many times as you like for 12 months We’re very sorry but we don’t allow dogs at Claythorpe. We love them, but we have free-roaming birds that can spook when dogs are around.

For centuries the thick layer of clay which borders the Humber estuary has been used to make tiles, bricks and cement. At the industry's height in the late 1800s, hundreds of men were employed to dig the clay by hand. The tile yards were abandoned in the 1950s, leaving the pits to fill naturally with water. When the Trust began to manage Far Ings in the 1980s the reeds in the old clay pits were thick and dense. The booming call of the bittern was just a dream. Over the years the Trust has developed the techniques of reedbed management to dramatic effect. Bitterns, kingfishers, water voles and an array of other wildlife can now be seen at Far Ings. The Visitor Centre has panoramic views over the reserve, interpretive displays and a gift shop.
