‘Transforming intensively grazed sheep pasture into Barn Owl Heaven’.
Managing the land for Barn Owls has created habitat for a wonderful array of native plants and flowers, insects, butterflies birds and mammals. We hold regular events throughout the seasons to share the LLP experience.
The 26 acre Lennon Legacy Project was purchased in 2001 with a legacy from the late Vivien Lennon. This unique nature reserve includes part of the River Ashburn which runs through a woodland valley, on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, where the Barn Owl Trust offices are based. Creating rough grassland, re-creating hedge banks, planting an orchard, building a wildlife tower and stone banks, plus two wildlife ponds has hugely increased the biodiversity of this varied landscape.
The diary began in January 2007 and each year has a monthly record of some of the events and happenings at the time – new species recorded, practical work carried out, weather conditions – all accompanied by pictures. Select your year and scroll down through December to January – enjoy..
You can find out more about the LLP by coming along to our Seasonal Guided Walks or a Barn Owl Trust Talk hosted in our Meeting Room. See our Events Diary for details.
(The project is not open to visitors at other times.)
