Conservation work

  • we use cattle grazing for habitat management
  • ragwort and hawthorn control is carried out every year. We do this by pulling it up, chemically spraying or cutting
  • a ride through Henley Wood is cut back during the winter. Sapling trees are cut to prevent the woodland spreading into the Grassland
  • footpaths across the site are mowed during summer. This helps to keep people on footpaths and protect ground nesting birds
