The Friends work with Ash Road Area Residents Association, Queenswood Tenants and Residents Association, and Queenswood and Woodbridge in Bloom to help improve Batcliffe Wood. The wood extends south from Beckett Park as far as Kirkstall Lane and Queenswood Drive. One of the original carriage drives to Kirkstall Grange ran through the wood - you can still follow path of the sunken road. The Council has just replaced the fencing alongside Queenswood Drive and volunteers have cleaned up rubbish and planted trees. The Parks Ranger is helping us prepare a wildflower meadow.
The next volunteer task will be on Wednesday 18th November 2020 when we will planting planting a cherry tree, thinning out overgrown trees, clearing rubbish and litter. Meet at 10.00 am at the bottom end of the wood near Langdale Terrace. See the News page for more details - and don't forget to book!
