THE CONTAINER CLADDING PROJECT - 2015
OverviewIn Autumn 2015, the unsightly storage container at the Park was transformed from an eye-sore into what has become a thriving home for nature! Please see the story in pictures below, courtesy of John Little, whose firm carried out the work. A point perhaps not so obvious from these pictures is that a roof garden has been laid on top, and the plan was that by Spring 2016 it would be full of flowers, and attracting many busy buzzing insects.
Update - 2016Now the Storage Container really has become a wildlife reserve!
Apart from improving the look of the previously very ugly storage container, the main point of the project to clad it was to encourage the wildlife. All those little holes are there to provide homes for various insects, which in turn would provide a food source and hence attract birds. Well now, a very happy Park visitor has highlighted the fact that some Tits are nesting in the roof lining! See the Visitors' Log for the full comment.
