History

This page is currently under development - please come back soon to find out more.

In 2011, the Trust purchased the four acre site of the former Gadespring Cress Beds, which will be managed sympathetically for the benefit of wildlife and visitors.

A very old painting of what appears to be Gadespring Cress Beds & the Watercress farmers working.
It looks a lot like the view looking SE towards the Old Fishery Lane canal bridge & cottage,
from the S bank of the River Bulbourne, N of Gadespring, with Chaulden Meadow being behind the viewer.

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.
