Lancaster and Gurney Court Roads

Welcome to the Lancaster and Gurney Court Roads Wilderhood Watch Group page! We’ve been very busy running numerous projects designed to make our neighbourhood far more hospitable for wildlife. For more information please follow the links:

Our next event will be at 6:30pm on Thursday June 30th when we’ll be weeding our street by hand.

Our Lancaster and Gurney Court Rd gardens are becoming more biodiverse, hopefully thanks to all the effort we’re putting into making them wildlife friendly. Pictured here is a Green Finch and a Scarlet Tiger moth.

If you’d like to get involved, please email our group co-ordinator, Nadia Bishara (

Lots of Lancaster Rd residents supported the Wilderhood Watch stall at our recent Jubilee street party, swapping plants and sharing knowledge of wildlife and gardening.

On Lancaster Rd we’re recycling all our medication blister packs. If you’d like to join in, just pop your blister packs in this box outside number 66.

In Lancaster rd a fence has been taken down between two front gardens, creating easy access for wildlife and a greater source of light for this beautiful yew hedge to flourish.We’re hoping more neighbours will plant hedges instead of fences as part of our Plant a Hedge project.

A lovely addition to our Toad Road project, (Nov 2021), and more recently (Jan 2022), a pair of foxes relaxing in a Lancaster rd garden!

During Sustfest 2021 we ran a stall promoting our challenges and competitions, and raising awareness of the Wilderhood Watch projects happening along our roads.

More high jinks from our resident fox cubs!

Here’s some footage of Lancaster road’s unbelievably cute fox cubs and their Mum!
