"History and Honey Walk" - Saturday 11 September

Come and join us on a guided walk organised by Wapley Bushes Conservation Group for Abbotswood Action Group. Everybody welcome!

We'll be starting at Abbotswood at 10.30 am, and returning about 1.00 pm.

This walk from Abbotswood to Wapley and back will look at Fruit and History, Pollinators and the Future.

  • Find out what was here before the estates were built, and learn about the importance of "home orchards" to local people.
  • Learn about the role of pollinators and the importance of encouraging small mammals.
  • Find out what the Orchard for the Future project at Wapley Common is doing to encourage them.
  • Discover why the railway was a key route to South Wales, its role in wartime and how it created an important wildlife corridor.
