Improvements to ‘The Cut’

Also known as the ‘Hen Run’, the well used footpath between Briary Gardens and The Terrace has been ‘adopted’ by the Trust as a wildlife conservation area, as a part of its Blooming Shotley Bridge Initiative.

This week a dozen volunteers have been cutting back the overgrown vegetation which has been taken for composting, by the County Council.  The stream has been cleared and debris removed.  Bulb and wildflower planting has been undertaken to improve the site’s biodiversity and habitats for wildlife have been created, including a stone and wood sculpture at the bottom entrance. A ‘bug hotel’, bat and bird boxes have been made by volunteers and school children.
