About Braithwaite Hall tree conservation

Build and plant individual tree shelters to ensure another generation of parkland trees at Braithwaite Hall.

We'll be building individual tree guards out of timber and wire and planting them with holly, lime, and other native trees. Braithwaite Hall has a large number of veteran trees forming a parkland landscape around the farm. To ensure the conservation of this landscape and the high number of species that are associated with veteran trees in parkland it is essential to have a planting programme that ensures younger trees are protected so that they to will one day reach veteran status.

About the accommodation

The accommodation is located on the edge of the village of Buckden and at the foot of 702m high Buckden Pike. It is a 200-year-old converted barn with a large living room with open views up to Wharfedale into Langstrothdale. It is an ‘upside down’ building with the living room, kitchen and one bunk room on the first floor and two bunk rooms and bathroom on the ground floor. Each bunk room has two bunk beds. One is en suite, the other two share a bathroom/toilet. Town Head Bunkhouse does not have a garden next to the building but there is a National Trust picnic area with a built-in barbecue just 100 yards away.
