Monkton Nature Reserve is unique in East Kent as the only privately owned nature reserve, held in trust for the local community.
Sorry no dogs allowed! Dogs are not permitted on Monkton Nature Reserve:the area is very sensitive and wildlife is easily disturbed, especially nesting birds. (Assistance dogs are welcome.)
Please note, every image displayed on this website was taken at the reserve.
Monkton Nature Reserve is owned by Thanet Countryside Trust, a registered charity, which holds the reserve in trust for the people of Thanet and East Kent.
