    Mulgrave Estate would like to say a special thank you to all of the children at Lythe CEVC Primary School for their fantastic entries in our Christmas card competition. All of the pictures were amazing making the judges decision even more difficult to select a winner. Two winners were chosen in joint first place. Lily Owen aged 11 with her beautiful water colour design of the castle and the grounds in winter. In joint first place Ethan Arnold aged 8 impressed the judges with his imaginative snow globe design. A special prize was also awarded to Isaac Arnold aged 5 for his detailed painting of a Red Fallow Deer.

  • Local school assists Estate during National Tree Week

    Local school assists Estate during National Tree Week

    25 children from the local primary school in Lythe assisted Mulgrave Estate staff to plant 800 hedge plants as part of National Tree Week. The new hedge is part of our Countryside Stewardship hedge and tree planting commitments over this winter. After the recent heavy rain the soil was easy to dig but it made conditions rather muddy ! I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and did a great job. Many thanks to Mr Stansfield and staff, we look forward to planting some more in the new year.

  • Improving access in Sandsend Valley

    Improving access in Sandsend Valley

    Work has been recently completed to address the problem with the access route to Teapot Hill in Sandsend Valley. New steps, surfacing and hand rails have been installed by Mulgrave Estate enabling easier access to the residential properties in the Valley. The route now has cleaner, safer surfacing which will benefit both Estate properties and private residents at Teapot Hill. The surface is made from aggregate and resin gel and the timber steps are from sustainable sources. 

  • Moorland re wetting at Westonby

    Moorland re wetting at Westonby

    Retaining water in the higher ground is a recognised method of reducing flash flooding to properties lower down the slopes. Mulgrave Estate are putting this theory to the test at Westonby moor, near Lealholm. Under the heather on Westonby moor lies a network of shallow drains and channels that allow water to escape and flow down to Stonegate Beck below Shortwaite and into the River Esk shortly afterwards. Our Countryside Stewardship agreement promotes blocking of the drains (grip blocking) on the moor leading to quality wet moor / heath habitat resulting in biodiversity gain. The wet heathland is home to a number of mosses, mire and bog species that are valuable to the ecological matrix of the moorland here. Wet bog and heath also stores carbon which is lost from the soil when it reverts to drier conditions or is drained. By soaking the moor all year round, any carbon is stored in the soils and contributes in its’ own way to the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere.

    Our contractors have been busy blocking the drains recently and as a result have created pools and prevented the moor emptying of water. By using a light machine on rubber tracks to do the work any damage to the moorland has been kept to the absolute minimum.
