Building dead hedges and log piles in the woodland at Nosterfield Quarry!

For the next community work day we will be clearing up after recent felling work in the woodland around Nosterfield Quarry. The brash and logs will be used to create dead hedges & log piles which will create homes for invertebrates, small mammals, birds and reptiles. The work in the woodland has been carried out to open up densely planted areas and create to glades.


We’ll be meeting at the Well Wetlands Plant Nursery at 10:00am (see map and address below). Please walk if possible, those that cannot, or live further afield, please park in the Tarmac Quarry Visitor Centre car park and take the footpath through to Flask Lane. There will be signs directing you to the plant nursery from the car park.

  • The event is taking place on Saturday 9 March 2024, from 10:00am until 1pm.
  • All ages welcome!
  • Gloves & equipment will be provided
  • Wear sensible footwear and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty
