Looking back at Summer on the Coleshill Estate 

What a remarkable dry and hot summer! Nevertheless our ranger team at Buscot & Coleshill have been busy as usual keeping the estate maintained to a high standard and carrying out a variety of tasks across the sites.

Flamborough Woods

The largest job our Ranger team have been tackling recently, was the clear felling of an area of mixed woodland for its replanting with native broadleaf this coming winter.
