1.6 Visitor numbers
The National Trust has actively sought to encourage visitors with a wide range of interests to the site, and to broaden the appeal of the site as much as possible:
displays include interpretation panels devoted to the geology, flora and fauna of the site
computer interactive displays have been used to expand the information base
guided tours are run, and information sheets and visitor packs have been produced
special days for artists are held.
These various initiatives, with the addition of a new visitor centre, full disabled access and better parking facilities, have led to visitor numbers now averaging 24,000 per year.
