Adair Walk

The first section of the Adair Walk is bordered by trees that have been planted by visitors and members in memory of loved-ones who enjoyed visiting us or who worked at the museum; sometimes their ashes have been deposited in the soil close by. The trees have protective surrounds and bear descriptive nameplates.

The woodland around the Adair Walk is a managed woodland area. The Willows are grown for Cricket Bats. During Summer 2016 these were harvested and have now been replaced with young trees. The contractors have left various "piles of logs" around to act as bug homes. The woodland is thus currently in an early stage of it's life-cycle, but it will obviously very quickly grow back. The more open nature of the area at the moment will attract different flora and fauna.
