North Cave Wetlands Nature Reserve

    We work with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust to restore Breedon’s North Cave Quarry and turn it into an extension of the North Cave Wetlands Nature Reserve. It’s a fascinating site for bird life. This picture shows the recently planted reedbeds which are one of the key habitats we are creating. In 2023 a large ‘donor reedbed’ site we designed was built with the help of the YWT site manager and Mires Beck Nursery, a local charity who work with the community and ensure the common reeds are of extremely local provenance!. These donor reedbeds act as a ‘growing on nursery’ for future planting across the quarry as it is restored.  This is just one aspect of the work we’ve done at North Cave, from masterplanning, restoration design, earthworks contract specifications and bills, to detailed water management systems, planting plans, fencing plans and sourcing bird hides.
