What we do

Following the National Trust's objectives to protect and improve the environment, our main conservation work has been to gradually remove non-native species such as Rhododendron Ponticum and invasive Birch as part of the plan to re-establish the broad leaf woodland trees to the area.

We have also started to replant areas of Simon's Wood with a wild seed mixture with the aim to provide an open woodland habitat to encourage additional areas of interest for birds, bees and butterflies.

Although primarily dependent on the National Trust's budget allocation for projects, we have also been supported by local grants, sponsorship and private donations. This additional support has been incredibly helpful as we do not generate revenue from entrance charges or sales of goods.
