Heworth Holme, Bad Bargain/Tang Hall Lane entrance, York, YO31 0RE

Clearing soil at Heworth Holme
Clearing soil for wildflower sowing at Heworth Holme

Meet at the west entrance to Heworth Holme at the corner of Bad Bargain Lane and Tang Hall Lane. If running late, please call 07542 070466 to find out where exactly the group is.

Help us take off patches of enriched top soil so that we can sow them with a wetland wildflower and grass mix. No experience is necessary; all ages welcome.

This work is part of our project of restoring the wetland meadow at Heworth Holme and York Becks Project, supported by the York Flood Appeal Fund which is managed by Two Ridings Community Foundation. 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.
