Our conservation work on Wenlock Edge happens all year round. A team of dedicated staff and volunteers ensure the woodland, meadows and wildlife are well looked after.

Nibbled Nut Project

In October 2015 we started a dormouse feeding signs (hazel nut) project on Wenlock Edge. The project aims to survey the entirety of Wenlock Edge in National Trust ownership and will therefore be undertaken over a number of years on a number of occasions between September and December.
