The latest NSC Woodland Plan

With a plan to impove the site there is much greater biodiveristy to explore. 

Natural England is the body looks after the National Stone Centre site and is in particular, reponsible for our custodianship of the SSSI (Site of Special Scientiific Interest) with respect to our on site  geology and geological fossil beds.  They are also responsible for our general management of the site; for example, the  woodland , flora and fauna but being non SSSI.

The NSC plan will replant with native english species, in particuler Hazel and other specific species found in the much older and well established Via Gellia valley that will encourage a wider variety of birds to adopt our site.  For example, Yew, Guelder Rose, Burnet Rose, Bird Cherry and Alder.  All bird friendly species.
