Amy and Martin in our bluebell woodland. In the background is the famous NDC pink coffin lid that travels round the country to various events. It is an example of a cardboard coffin that has been decorated by hand; in this case by visitors to the South Bank funeral exhibition. What you can't see in this shot is that it is covered in personal messages and thousands of sparkling crystals.

Dog Violets in Our Woods. These are the laval food of the Silver Washed Fritillary butterfly. The female lays her eggs in the bark of trees over the violets, the caterpillars then drop down onto the plants to feed. Fritillary butterfly have been spotted along the site's woodland edge.
The majority of the site's open areas are populated by grassland. At the height of summer these grasses grow up to 4 feet in height, covering the area in swathes of golden yellows and pastel greens.
