THE ROUTE & POINTS OF INTEREST
NATURE TRAIL GALLERY
Just like nature, our site is constantly evolving. We are very connected to the land and are continually making improvements to our conservation work across the land. We strive to practice nature-friendly farming and encourage biodiversity and new homes for wildlife to thrive on our land.
In 2012 we established a new woodland and wildflower meadow which is a stable habitat and food supply to hundreds of small insects and native mammals and each year we plant new trees in our woodlands. We also have exciting plans arising with rewilding part of our farmland, watch this space!
