PICTURESQUE Steeple Woodland Nature Reserve near St Ives will hold its annual open day on Sunday .

The volunteer-managed reserve has been transformed over a period of years through the efforts of the local community.

Volunteers, groups and schools have restored the area around Knill's Monument, previously overgrown with rhododendrons, to young woodland and heath.

The Steeple Woodland Project is now inviting people to come along on Sunday and find out more about the wildlife and history of the reserve.

Admission is free and there will be guided nature walks, activities for children, a woodcraft display, refreshments and live music.

A draught copy of the nature reserve's 2013 calendar will also be on view for pre-order after last year's calendar sold out.

The event starts at 2pm on the site of the old reservoir. Follow the signs from the wooden gate three-quarters of the way up Steeple Lane, or the signs on the main paths through the reserve.

Visitors are advised that parking is very limited.
