Five species of bats reside at the hall - common pipistrelle, soprano pipistrelle, Natterer's, brown long-eared and noctule. Eagle-eyed visitors might be able to spot the bats sleeping in small crevices in the saloon.

The wellbeing of our bats is very important to us, and all precautions have been put in place to ensure their protection while our building works are taking place.

We will be holding more bat surveys throughout the year - keep an eye out for the dates.
