This work is part of our project of restoring the wetland meadow at Heworth Holme and York Becks Project, which includes the creation of wildlife ‘scrapes’ – seasonal wetland areas to benefit wildlife and help with flood management. Our aim is to make this valuable green space more colourful and attractive for both the local community and wildlife. Heworth Holme is a remnant of old countryside in the town, protected from development by its regular winter flooding and part of a wildlife corridor between St Nicks Nature Reserve and other green spaces along the Tang Hall Beck.
