Skelton Grange Environment Centre

Hidden down a side road, only a very few miles away from me is a nature conservation and training centre, developed on National Grid land. There are actually lots of interesting sites tucked in nooks and crannies round here, in what might once have been a rather bleak industrial landscape. Skelton Grange is one of them.

Yesterday, it being Good Friday, we went there on an Easter egg hunt. To my knowledge I’ve never done one before, so I enjoyed looking for clues as much as my daughter. And then taking home the prize of an Easter egg each.

It was also fun having a go on the instruments made out of scrap. I wonder if the neighbours would mind if I incorporated the same into my back garden?

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. Great looking instruments – makes our single tree branch xylophone look a little lonely. 😉
