Welcome to Rosliston Forestry Centre

2 December 2020

With the second lockdown now over, Rosliston Forestry Centre remains open for exercise and your enjoyment.  South Derbyshire remains in Tier 3 for now so there are some restrictions on what you can do when visiting the site.  Our car park, toilets and play areas, along with the wider forest and trails, remain open subject to the guidelines found here.  Please help us to keep the facilities available by adhering to these guidelines and stay safe.

Please note that our machines only accept coins and do not issue change.  If you would like to purchase an Annual Car Park Pass for £35, please download the application form here.  The form includes information on how to pay by direct transfer and then we will send your pass to you in the post.
