Boxmoor, naturally...

If you have even the slightest interest in nature, the Boxmoor area, or the Trust estate then Lucy Flower's brilliant nature blog, Boxmoor, naturally... is a must read.

"Exploring all that's wild and alive on The Box Moor Trust estate".

The blog documents Lucy's wonderful observations of nature on Trust land in detail whilst being illustrated with her fantastic photography. It is an incredibly informative yet light-hearted read & she has a certain captivating & amusing writing style that is very special.

It is important to note that Gadespring Cress Beds is still being developed & due to health & safety will only be available for access, other than to wildlife monitors & work parties, at organised events & at times when there is a weekend volunteer warden on duty. General public access is a possibility for the future & this could only happen once the wildlife hide is relocated after planning permission. Keep an eye on this website & blog, as well as the Box Moor Trust website, for details of open days & organised public events when you can visit & explore Gadespring.
