Freeman’s Marsh

An area of wet rough grassland between the Kennet and Avon Canal and the River Dun. There are streams and ditches with marshy edges that attract a range of wetland species, which have included rarities such as Glossy Ibis and Dipper. Freemans Marsh is a nature reserve owned by the Town and Manor of Hungerford and is an excellent site for Water Voles.



Access: Along the canal towpath from Hungerford or from the A4, where there are access footpaths, at SU 330689 and at Ford Gate SU320685, with nearby pull-ins.
