Diglis Island, Worcester

Saturday 16th May @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Diglis Island Open Day

Step onto this secret island in the Severn to discover more about the twaite shad, the Unlocking the Severn project and the island’s fascinating history in this free event.

Atmospheric and unique, the boat building and lock gate making workshop contains heritage machinery and displays.

Here will we have scheduled video link ups to the Mondego River fish pass and underwater viewing gallery in Portugal, for a virtual tour and the chance to see some shad migrating! (Please check the website for updates on times)

We will also have live updates from our marathon shad count in Tewkesbury, to see how many shad are making their way up the Severn towards Worcester.

*Due to narrow lock gates, access onto Diglis Island is limited. If you have any accessibility requirements, please get in touch and we would be happy to advise*
