Local expert Roger Dickey, former chair of the Somerset Ornithological Society will be leading the walk.

The walk will cover approximately 1.5miles of the reserve- some of the ground is uneven and it may be wet so please wear suitable footwear and clothing and don't forget your binoculars if you have them.

Refreshments are available at the end of the walk or join us for breakfast* (*extra charge - please book your breakfast at the same time so we know how many people to cater for).

Please contact us at jackie.gage@carymoor.org.uk if you have any questions.

The ticket price helps support our education and conservation work. Thank you!

The post code for the Carymoor Environmental Centre is BA7 7NR. If using Google Maps please search for Dimmer Landfill Site near Castle Cary, as we share the same main gate.

By road: Coming off the B3153 on to Dimmer Lane, you’ll see a sign for the Dimmer landfill site and Recycling Centre. Follow this road until you come to a farm on a left hand bend and turn immediately right. You’ll see the signs here for the Dimmer site and for Carymoor. At the end of this road you’ll pass the recycling centre on your right and come to the main gate of the landfill site.

This gate will be locked at the time of this event but there will be a member of staff from Carymoor there between 5.45am and 6am to let you in. (Please contact me on my mobile number 07966 402391 if you think you may be late).

  • go through the main gates and turn immediately left before the weighbridge (ignore the wooden building and car park by the weighbridge – this is the landfill site operator’s offices).
  • Please note there is a 10mph speed limit on the site. You’ll see a big white sign on the bank with Carymoor on it and then green arrows with ‘Carymoor’ marked on them to direct you.

Keep going up over the hill, past a large compost operation on your left, and at the bottom of the hill you’ll see the centre and the car park on the left hand side.
