Hillfort Woods

3rd September 2021

We now have a Hillfort Woods Facebook group!

“Hillfort Woods” is an area of land that is a wonderful breath of fresh air in an increasingly busy world. With views of the beautiful Cornish countryside, it is a lovely area. The woods offer a home to wildlife as well as both respite and inspiration to humans!

The area is held by Liskeard Hillfort Primary School under a 125 year lease agreement with Cornwall Council. The school has a management group that includes the Headteacher, other staff and parents.

Over the next few months, we intend to amend the area. We intend to:

• Install a carved nature trail;

• Create benches using the trunk of the recently felled tree – which sadly had been removed due to its dangerous condition;

• Install a ‘boggy garden’ and a ‘sensory garden’;

• Install bird and bat boxes;

• Coppice some of the hazel to provide a natural barrier to the area;

• Place signage to offer information to users.

We look forward to posting images of the developing programme!

Happy walking!!!!
