In September 2019, we were delighted to acquire 44 acres of land called Dougill Grange. This land adjoins Bank Woods, and has its own access from the B6165 just south of Summerbridge, Nidderdale.
It has a few mature trees, lots of fairly derelict dry stone walls, and wonderful stone field barn (which is in an even worse state of repair than its neighbour at Bank Woods!)
We have plans to plant 10,000 trees on approximately half the area, during the planting season 2019/20. The rest will be lightly grazed by hardy cattle.
This land is currently not open to the public.
