Stanpit Marsh Visitor Centre

The Stanpit Marsh Visitor Centre was officially opened on the 20th September 2008. Since that time the Friends of Stanpit Marsh and the Volunteer Wardens have helped care for the site, and created a central hub of information available for all visitors to the SSSI Nature Reserve.

The Visitor's Centre and interior view

The site is owned by Christchurch and East Dorset Councils and the Visitor Centre is staffed entirely by volunteers, who have a wealth of information on all things Marsh related, and FOSM run a monthly coffee morning at the Visitor Centre raising funds to help care for the Visitor Centre and the Marsh too.

This help and support for the care of the site is hugely appreciated, and has enabled the site to become something really special. A hub of knowledge, wildlife and local pride.
