Stag Beetle sculpture arrives in time for Heritage Sunday

The brain child of GBC Countryside Wardens, a three foot sculpture of a stag beetle has been commissioned for the Gunpowder Mills Site.

It has been paid for by Chilworth2gether who are donating it to the heritage site. It has just arrived –

The sculpture will be sited in the picnic area, close to the “bug hotel” which is an area designed to provide nesting and hibernation places for bugs and insects. The purpose of the sculpture is to delight and encourage young visitors and the Forest School children who use the picnic site each week, to think about nature conservation and the environment.
