The Forge grounds are in the Don valley and rather sheltered by high ground across the river. Our volunteers and our Sunday visitors are around the site on just a couple of days a week. Some areas are rarely visited and the wild life are largely undisturbed.
We are frequently visited by the heron and a kingfisher is glimpsed on rare occasions. Swallows return each year to skim through the Forge and nest in the West Shed. The moles are a nuisance!
