Pitton Hill Update

Throughout 2023 the trustees of Pitton Nature Trust have been seeking to reach agreement with owners of an area of land on Pitton Hill which would enable the charity to create a nature reserve open to the public.

We have been grateful for the expert advice we have received from a number of external sources, but in particular to Dr Sue Clarke from the Wiltshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation Trust.

Unfortunately the landowners have decided not to proceed with an agreement at this time.

The charity continues to pursue a number of other projects including working with the Parish Council to create a wildlife habitat in The Close and continuing discussion with Wiltshire Council and the Parish Council to create a community orchard on land at Roundbarrow Farm.
