Internationally important nature reserve, with a fascinating 20th-century military history.

The largest shingle spit with vegetation in Europe, the Reserve contains a variety of habitats including shingle, salt marsh, mudflat, brackish lagoons and grazing marsh.

It provides an important location for breeding and passage birds as well as for the shingle flora, including a large number of nationally rare species.

The Ness was a secret military test site from 1913 until the mid-1980s. Visitors follow a 5½ml route, which can be walked in total or in part (the full walk involves walking on shingle). Other walks (approx. 3mls) are open seasonally.
