Things In The Pipeline!

Tuesday, October 20th 2020

Many of the ponds at Foxglove are artificially made and are fed by water diverted from streams and becks. Routine checks and maintenance ensure that they all function properly. On checking one of the ponds off the beaten track, an issue was discovered and it soon became clear that there was an obstacle in one of the sections of pipe. To all of our surprise, it turned out to be a giant tree root! Once removed, the pond quickly filled to its usual level. Thank you to Peter and Gerry for braving the icy waters and pulling it out!

Also in the pipeline is a new Pumpkin Trail for Halloween. Olivia, an Intern from Teesside University has been busy putting together some interesting facts about wildlife and making some fun clues that will be put out on the Easy Access Trail (Red Route) over the next few days.

The clues will stay in place over half term so why not pay a visit and enjoy some 'screen free' family time in the fresh air. Watch this space for further details!
