Grounds Maintenance

The Grounds Team have been very busy all through Covid -19 managing the campus landscape. Tree work has been carried out as per our survey and maintenance schedule including the reduction of the Salix alba’s along in the Lancaster hotel garden following a pollarding regime. Bat boxes and bird boxes are located in the vicinity helping the varied habitats along the river Pinn corridor.
