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.
