Limited mobility needn’t mean missing out on nature. 

They are very excited to say that the NDC now has a Tramper available to borrow free of charge!

This allows anyone who has difficulty exploring their site by foot to still see their reserve.

Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust - BBOWT, West Berkshire Council

Please note you must be accompanied by someone over the age of 16 years old when using a Tramper..

A Tramper is an electric, four-wheeled scooter designed to transport physically disabled persons over sealed and unsealed surfaces.

It can negotiate kerbs up to 125mm in height, and has been designed to be used on slopes not exceeding 1:4 up, down or sideways.

There is a storage box at the front for your camera, binoculars or just a picnic!

If you walk with the aid of a stick or crutches, there is a place to secure them to the back of the vehicle.

The Tramper can deal with most types of terrain and it will allow you to visit areas of a reserve that otherwise might be inaccessible.

You don’t have to be registered disabled to use one.

Many people who, for whatever reason, find it difficult to walk long distances use their Trampers to get to places they would otherwise struggle to reach.

Some people use the Tramper to continue a hobby, for instance wildlife photography that is becoming more difficult for them.

If you think it’s not for you, think again and just try it! 

You must be accompanied by someone over the age of 16 years old when using a Tramper.

Please talk to a member of staff if you have any questions about this.
