Description
Some help needed this Autumn please to work with my friends to cover the pollytunnel, to help to re- line the wildlife pond and to help to renew a few fence posts. You could make a great difference!

I love my garden, created over the past 18 years from the corner of a field.

The garden has vegetable and fruit beds, a polytunnel, a flower bed, a separate herb garden, a wildlife pond, damson trees and an uncooperative apple tree. A hedge of indigenous species forms the southern field boundary.
I have a couple of chairs and a hammock to sit and enjoy the garden, surrounding woods and fields on a sunny day.


The village, set in open countryside, is one long row of houses on a hillside, left when the colliery and housing were demolished in the 1960's.
We have a neighbourhood nature reserve and a Durham Wildlife Reserve towards the head of the valley. We're a few miles from Weardale, Durham City and 15 miles from Newcastle/Gateshead.
