Improvements to a woodland area have been completed following a £15,000 revamp.

The Bentsley Spinney in Marshalswick, St Albans, had new bird and bat boxes installed as well as an interpretation panel showing the woodland’s main features,

Unveiled by Cllr Salih Gaygusuz, the scheme was funded by the Tarmac Company through the Landfill Communities Fund with contributions from Sandridge parish council and county councillor Geoff Churchard’s locality budget.

The project was organised by Countryside Management Service (CMS), working in partnership with St Albans council as owners of the site.

Cllr Gaygusuz said: “I am hugely impressed with the improvements made to Bentsley Spinney and would urge people to come and have a look to see for themselves.
