The Parish of Abbotskerswell is blessed with incredible biodiversity and beauty.

SW view of Parish

'Permanent pasture and arable fields, surrounded by traditional hedgerows are the dominant feature of the Parish. Most of the hedgerows are species-rich and probably ancient. Small copses and woodlands are dotted across the Parish. This type of landscape is often home to an abundance of bats and several species have been recorded.'

We have a Tree Warden who is Amy Walkden. She can be contacted by email to amy.amy(add @ sign)me.com or on her mobile; 07787 135409.

The latest Biodiversity report from 2007 can be seen here, with the updated commentary from 2015 which was submitted for the Neighbourhood Plan.
