Located on the eastern edge of Frome, Somerset, Rodden Nature Reserve is easily accessible by car, train, bicycle or on foot. It is approximately 5 minutes walk from Frome railway station, 15 minutes from Frome town centre. It is also on the National cycle route 24 (see Sustrans for more info). Grid ref: ST789475.

 

The main public access is to the Western Pool area of the reserve. From the roundabout take the road towards the ASDA store. Do not enter the store car park but continue along the road. Take care as most people leaving the store assume you will turn left into the car park!! Continue for about 100m. Entrance is through the pedestrian gate next to the information board on the right hand side of the road. Parking is on the roadside or in the ASDA car park.

 

The lakeside walk is closed to the public during the breeding season (1st February - 1st September). Only FAWG members and contractors maintaining the reserve or surveying are permitted during this period.

 

There is no public access to the Eastern Pool area.

 

To minimise disturbance to wildlife, dogs, horses and other animals are not permitted anywhere on the reserve.
