Churchyard Scything

Learn how to manage a churchyard in the traditional fashion - with a scythe! As part of Church Tourism Week 2017 churchyard charity Caring for God’s Acre will demonstrate how to manage churchyards in the traditional way using the scythe. Before the widespread use of the mower, churchyards were left to flower during the summer months and then scythed in late July. Hay was made and was given to the vicar as part of his stipend. During this day our volunteers (who manage churchyards using scythes every week) will be peacefully scything while Ben, our volunteer co-ordinator, will be on hand to answer any questions. Entry is free; no booking necessary, just drop in.

Insect and Beetle Trail

Inspired by M.G. Leonards award winning book ‘Beetle Boy’, we will be running an educational Insect and Beetle Trail around the 12 acre woodland garden over the summer holidays (from Monday 24th July 17). Families will be invited to explore the garden guided by the Beetle Trail which will journey through the woodland quarry and garden teaching visitors how to identify Beetle species as well as informing about their habitats and life cycles. There will be Beetle identification sheets and also a display of sample Beetles donated by PHD entomologist, Fran Sconce, from Harper Adams University. Families will be asked to collect items along the trail and then make their own beetle to take home. M.G. Leonards books will also be available for sale in the gift room. The trail is free of charge and aims to educate children and families about Beetles, other insects, and wildlife that lives within the 12 acre hillside garden.

From: 24th July 2017

To: 3rd September 2017
