Estates News!

Work has progressed on the WLP bedroom corridors, the next section outside bedrooms 4 and 5 is now complete and looking very smart indeed. (pictured)

Dozens of new trees have been planted out in the Beale Arboretum, including 16 more added to the International Conifer Conservation Programme collection, and 32 more from a wide variety of species and sources.

Storm Ciara caused widespread disruption for us at WLP including whole sections of fencing down, broken lights, and thousands of fallen branches, but as I write we have escaped the worst with no trees felled.

Work has finalised on a new scheme for the Buckland Suite at BH, which will be done during the summer holidays.
