The Willow & Wetlands Visitor Centre is owned and run by the Coates family who have been growing willow and basketmaking here for nearly 200 years. Guided tours are available to show visitors how the willow is harvested, processed and used to make baskets and coffins. There are some lovely walks by the river and through the willow beds. Refreshments and light lunches are available at The Lemon Tree. Basketware is on sale at the shop. Other outlets are also on site.
