Come and join us for a tour around High Ash Farm at Barrow Moor and find out all about the fantastic plans being developed to benefit wildlife through the SWP. There are herb rich hay meadows filled with wildflowers testament to their sensitive management; a re-meandering project for the old watercourse to help slow the flow of water; leaky dams in the woodland watercourses and re-wetting of a rush pasture that will be enhanced with wildflowers and improved for wading birds.

The walk will involve 2 - 3 miles over sloping farmland, some steep hills, rough tracks and terrain. Please bring suitable outdoor clothing and a packed lunch (if required). Tea and coffee will be available.

Venue: High Ash Farm, Barrow Moor, Longnor, SK17 0QY.

Date: 6th July, 1 - 4.30pm
