Our team are also able to install stiles, field and pedestrian gates and squeezes, as well as constructing livestock management systems including cattle crushes, livestock drinking stations and water gates.
Skylarks Nature Reserve was recently expanded when the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust purchased neighbouring land. Large scale works were started by the Trust and EMEC Land Management won the tender to carry out a variety of habitat enhancement works. A total of 2km of boarded limestone path were created for wheelchair access across the site. Additional access work included the reinforcement of two bridges, installation of metal disabled access gates, welded tubular fencing and vehicular access gates.
Attenborough Nature Reserve is the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's flagship site with an award winning visitor centre which is sited on a peninsular. At the tip of the peninsular, behind the visitor centre, is a small wildlife garden and education area. Over a few days the EMEC Land Management team resurfaced the paths with gravel as well as re-sited a rail fence, fitted a small access gate and put up a post and rope fence. Our team worked with volunteers from the Reserve, wheel barrowing in all materials to limit vehicle use and potential disturbance to wildlife at the site.
