Braille and large print guides of Ferry Meadows Country Park have been launched to the general public, demonstrating that making the Park accessible to all is an on-going aspiration which the Nene Park Trust staff team will continue to work towards. The idea of the guides is to convey the beauty and range of opportunities the Park has to offer to potentially a whole new audience. They also provide a practical navigation tool for anyone with some form of visual impairment for whom the standard leaflets are of little benefit.

“Creating accessible guides of Ferry Meadows was suggested by access forum members and visitors, as well as recommended in our access audit, to help enrich the experience of the Park for those with visual impairments. The feedback from visually impaired Park users has been really positive and we hope they will be used by as many people as possible.” Susan Evans, Senior Projects and Development Officer at Nene Park Trust.

The guides, which were produced in conjunction with the RNIB, are available in standard braille and large print formats and are free to loan through the Visitor Centre or by contacting Nene Park Trust. They also produce a regular newsletter called ‘Parklife which is also available in large print and audio formats. These are also freely available from the Visitor Centre, can be downloaded here, or can be sent by post. For more information on the accessible guides of Ferry Meadows, or any other aspect of visitor access, please contact Nene Park Trust directly on 01733 234 193 or via email at
