Hum Hole

A sloped area of open informal grassland fringed by woodland that has a series of three small ponds fed by a stream that runs through the site. This is a natural haven in an area dominated by busy main roads, schools and residential areas. Local residents have worked with the Community Payback Project to improve the paths, clear unwanted vegetation around the grassland and along the path edges and make the area more user-friendly for the many users. This work is also opening up the woodland edge to encourage wildlife suited to such habitats.
