We were delighted acquire, in 2021, a piece of land adjacent to Sylvan Nature Reserve, to enlarge our land-holding there.

At around the same time we planted our first trees at Sylvan, in 2011, our neighbours at Windmill Hill were planting an orchard, a vineyard and lots of native deciduous trees . It has not been under intense agriculture, for some time, and is perfect to ‘give back to nature’.

We have planted a wide mixed hedge interspersed with oaks, and also mixed native trees which will be available for dedication. In due course, we will sow a wildflower meadow, and add a small wildlife pond. A number of businesses will be planting sponsored woodlands here.

Windmill Hill is not generally open to the public, but may be accessed to visit a dedicated tree, by special arrangement, if you contact us.

The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
