North Yorkshire Aggregates Grants Scheme (NYAGS)

Catterick Garrison

This project received North Yorkshire Aggregates Grants Scheme (NYAGS) funding for the construction of a raised, insulated viewing hide to overlook the Wet Meadows habitat of Foxglove Covert LNR.

Also built were three all-weather signed walkways with ramps and a viewing platform to allow access through the reserve to the hide from the existing south moorland gate; a narrow linear reed bed (planted with the Common reed, phragmites) to screen visitors as they walk along the path to the hide; hedgerows to be planted around the site, and remedial planting to replace Sitka spruce plantations adjacent to the site. It is expected that the project will further protect the environment by diverting visitors away from sensitive or protected areas.
