Salisbury Ave and Garden Close

Welcome to the Salisbury Ave and Garden Close Wilderhood Watch page!

As part of our Toad Road project, lots of us are digging ponds in our gardens. This is our newest one on Garden Close – complete with dead wood habitat and lots of stones round the edge creating hiding places for small creatures. Fantastic!

Inspired by all the beautiful ponds they saw on our Pond Walk, this family have recently dug their own. An amazing addition to our Salisbury Ave Toad Road!

Our Pond Walk on September 22nd 2021 was a great success, and has already enthused people to add a pond to their gardens as part of our Toad Road project.
