Chilworth Conservation Area

chilworth conservationBuxey Wood, the ecology meadow and the Arboretum are all significant features of the Chilworth Manor Estate but they had been badly neglected until a few years ago. A small group of local residents and volunteers from the University has been working to conserve and restore the area, under the auspices of a charity, Chilworth Conservation Ltd.  Chilworth Conservation has a new online donation facility.  You can find out more about the important work of this charity at its website, but if you’re already aware and would like to make a donation then you may do so here.  [Since this post was published in March 2015, Chilworth Conservation Ltd has closed.  Also, BT has stopped supporting MyDonate. The volunteers are still active, and have a Google page.  Follow the link to ‘Chilworth Conservation Area’ in the sidebar of this website’s home page.]
