Worcester Walk Meadows Tour (Heritage Open Days)

Friday 17th September, 2021
13:00-17:00

A 'Heritage Open Days' event, this is an opportunity to have a conducted tour of the Worcester Walk Community Project meadow site, set up under the auspices of the National Lottery Heritage funded Foresters’ Forest programme and to see what is being achieved by local people.

The project is about encouraging local people to learn more about their natural and cultural heritage. The site is being managed to enhance habitat for a number of species, including the creation of a shallow pond.  Part of the site has been planted with heritage trees in an orchard setting. Two fields have been developed to become wildflower meadows, working alongside another project called Dean Meadows. It is intended that the site will be further used for countryside skills training.

Event Times: Friday 17 September: 13.00 to 14.00; 14.30 to 15.30; 16.00 to 17.00

Location: Worcester Walk Community Project, next to Worcester Lodge, Speech House Road,, Coleford, Gloucestershire, GL16 7EG.
