We need you!

To help protect important habitat and allow wildlife to thrive, we need to know what is here at The Follies

Large scale surveys can help but often show a small moment in time.

Your photos could help us! If you have taken photos of any of the wildlife, from birds, insects, fungi, mammals or plants, we would love to add them to our archive. Just email them to follies@hawkstone.co.uk with the date they were taken, and a rough location on the Park.
