Banbury -

The progressive work (2002-06) and restoration (2004-10) of the Wood Farm site by Hanson UK and Smiths Concrete into a mix of woodland, flower-rich grassland and wetland habitats has created a diverse landscape in a key zone between three of the Ancient Woodlands at the heart of the Princethorpe complex, one of the most important and well-wooded zones within the English West Midlands. The restored land has created vital habitat linkages between two Ancient SemiNatural Woodlands, and significantly improved the habitat connectivity and “permeability” compared to the original arable land use.
