Bat and Tree Surveys at Papplewick

As part of a proposal to construct a new Education, Exhibition and Community Centre at Papplewick Pumping Station, the Trust has undertaken bat and tree surveys to study the area where the proposed building may one day be built. The Trust is pleased to announce that no bats are present and that the trees that will need to be removed will not have any impact upon the visual appearance of the area or the local habitat and environment. These surveys were funded by Museum Development East Midlands. Click here to download the Bat Survey, click here to download the Tree Survey.
