On a gloriously sunny February day our Historic Nidderdale Project Officer headed to Fishpond Wood to oversee the installation of three new information panels. Two panels, one at the elaborate entrance in Bewerley and the other at the entrance off Peat Lane, introduce the wood and provide a glimpse of its history. A further panel at the icehouse places this unique structure in the historical context of the wood as well as introducing the icehouse’s inhabitant, the European cave spider.
An audio trail that takes you on a walk through the woodland with its owner, Dr Peter Brambleby, will be available soon.
