Reaseheath College and The Sandstone Ridge Trust are working with farmers and land managers to establish a Sandstone Ridge Farmer Network, supported through Natural England’s facilitation funding initiative. The Sandstone Ridge in Cheshire is a farmed landscape interspersed with woodland, heathland and species-rich meadows, which is particularly rich in history, wildlife and visitor interest. Farmers on the Sandstone Ridge have joined forces to support local activities which will improve the Ridge’s landscape features, habitats, watercourses and historic features while improving opportunities for priority species on the ridge such as Barn owl and willow tit.
