Work has started on a £33,000 project to improve the habitats found at the Wye Valley Nature Reserves, near Miller’s Dale.

Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, which manages the reserves, is leading the project, with the work set to improve the grazing management of grasslands, upgrade the footpath network and educate people about the reserves’ ecology.

Sheep and cattle grazing will keep the grasslands in check, enabling wild plants to thrive. New fencing and gates will be installed to prevent the animals from wandering into the adjoining woodland or orchid grassland when all the flowers are in bloom.
