Stepping Out

Wednesday, January 13th 2016

It actually felt a bit like winter today, dry and crisp with ice on the windscreen first thing. Quite a good day in fact for our visitors, like the Dales School to go for a walk around the reserve and today we also enjoyed welcoming a new group to Foxglove, Northdale Horticultural, who are based near Northallerton. After some quick refreshment and a look round the visitor centre we took them on a guided walk around the yellow route. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and a few photos were taken for their blog.


A few weeks ago on our blog we mentioned about our plans for the wetland area, to add some scrapes to it, today we moved another step closer to this, with the installation of a new access gate. We expect the creation of the scrapes to commence in the next few weeks.
