Blakehill Nature Reserve is home to Oak and Furrows Wildlife Rescue, an animal charity, where sick and injured animals can be treated. Patrons of the charity include Pam Ayres MBE and Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull.
Annually the centre takes in over 3,000 wildlife casualties and receives between 6 and 7,000 telephone calls for help and advice, all this achieved by a dedicated team of people comprising of staff, volunteers, friends and supporters, without whom it would not be possible.
Oak and Furrows operate a 24 hour Wildlife Rescue Service, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. The centre relies on donations to survive and does not receive any government funding.
Please be aware that due to the nature of their work and the sensitivity of the patients in their care they are not open to the public (other than to deliver wildlife casualties or donations to support their work), visitors are not permitted unless by prior appointment. Call the centre on 01793 751412 if you need to visit for any reason.
