Grassy guides free

A FREE grasslands guide has been produced by Northumberland nature experts.

Northumberland Wildlife Trust has published the Whin Grasslands Management Guide in conjunction with its consultancy division EcoNorth and local expert Dr Janet Simpkin.

The publication, which is designed for landowners and aggregates companies, has been funded by the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Sustainable Development Fund.

It marks the end of a three-year project, which was also funded by the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund.

The guide can be downloaded at
