We’re Building a Wheelchair Accessible Bird Hide at RSPB Pagham Harbour

January 15, 2018

We’ve been working at RSPB site, Pagham Harbour, near Chichester in West Sussex, building a large bird hide that is fully accessible to wheelchairs. It features a covered veranda and side deck, as well full length windows and shuttered windows. Have a look in the video below at what we’ve been doing as the hide nears completion.

Below are a few images from the site (which is currently rather wet), showing both the main hide (as shown in the video) and a smaller structure, similar to the octagon hide we built at Abberton Reservoir. The hexagonal activity shelter is alongside a pond, which we are also building complete with dipping platforms – the idea is that the pond and activity shelter area act as an education centre for visiting school / club groups. The shelter has fold down benches all the way around and a central table, with two of the sides open. There are also 3 bug hotels fixed to 3 of the walls outside. Clicking an image below will enlarge it.
