With funding from Caring for the Cotswolds, Chalford Biodiversity Action in collaboration with the Parish Council, has created a circular wildlife trail 10 km long through Chalford Parish. It passes through some of our wonderful Local Wildlife Sites and also places where the community have worked to improve biodiversity. There are information boards at Abnash Bank, France Lynch Pleasure Ground, Parish Bank, Middle Hill Spinney and Meadow, and Frith Wood. it is hoped that both residents and visitors will enjoy following the trail.

We recently ran a competition to name the newly planted native trees on Middle Hill in Chalford Hill. Many thanks to everyone who sent in a suggestion and the winning name chosen is “The Spinney”. An inscription on reclaimed wood is currently being made and the unveiling ceremony will be taking place soon.
Grow Your Own Campaign
“I love my pea shoots. Real sense of achievement that I have grown my own food!”
“Thanks Chalcan for the kit. We had 2 packets in ours and have had a bumper crop of pink radish which we enjoyed very much and used up quickly”
