Building work gone batty!

Our first visitors have arrived at the Well – a small number of bats! Refurbishment has been put on hold for a couple of weeks in order to ensure that the bats are undisturbed whilst plans are put in place to ensure their continued presence at the Well.

Rhys Humm, Holywell director, explains, ‘The bats have been identified by a registered expert who has made a number of recommendations to ensure that our little friends are well looked after at the Holywell. We have installed some special nesting boxes and a bat friendly entrance. Building work will resume as soon as we are sure that they are settled in for the winter.’
