In September our Estates Director, Robert Childerhouse, and our Maintenance Manager, Clive Tomlinson, have challenged themselves to walk the 84-mile length of Hadrian’s Wall over 3 days. The challenge, which is in aid of Saint Catherine’s Hospice, will start in Bowness on Solway in Cumbria and finish at Wallsend in Newcastle. Saint Catherine’s provide care and support at home and in the hospice for adults with a terminal illness, and to their families, and friends. Although the hospice is Scarborough-based, they provide care throughout 1,600 square miles of North and East Yorkshire, allowing a patient to remain as active as possible and make the most of every day. If you would like to sponsor Robert & Clive and help raise much needed funds for this valued charity, please visit our JustGiving page at

Our resident Exmoor Ponies are on the move again around the Estate. We recently rehoused them at Sandsend Quarry to graze the coastal slope grassland. The grasslands here are becoming choked by gorse, bramble and rank grasses so the Exmoor’s are the ideal tool to combat this and get the flower and herb rich sward back into condition. The quarry is open to the public but please observe the signs on the gates and be responsible around the livestock. As we move the Exmoor’s around the various conservation grazing sites we are looking for volunteer pony checkers to keep an eye on them on a day to day basis and report any problems. If you walk to the quarry regularly and would like to volunteer for this do get in touch with email@example.com
