what is it?

The Allanton Wildlife Woodland Walk was launched on the 6th June 2015 at the 17th World Peace Festival. 

We worked hard all year to create the Woodland Walk.  In the winter, the volunteers cut down some trees and cut back low branches to create paths.  They were careful to leave the dead wood for the woodpeckers.

We are deeply grateful to our funders,  Solway Heritage,  Heritage Lottery Fund and Auldgirth District Community Council.  The Allanton Wildlife Woodland Walk was launched on the  6th June 2015 at the 17th World Peace Festival with great celebration and lots of excitement.  The ribbon was cut by Colin Mitchell, the Chairperson of Solway Heritage.  The walk is open to the community and all are welcome to enjoy the wildlife that is part of our heritage. Over 100 people, small  and large, followed the new local Moniaive Samba Band into the woods at the launch.
