Conservation at Poston Mill Park. The business impact on our neighbours is minimal with careful planting of hedgerows, woodland areas, green caravan Holiday Homes, low level and motion sensor lights.
The Beech hedges at the Park entrance take on some beautiful hues from spring through Autumn and back to spring again and with the park open all year for caravans and motor homes you get to enjoy the colour display whenever you visit. We are proud to continue being Gold David Bellamy award winners, and in 2018 we achieved 2 of the new awards: Hedgerows and wildflowers
We have the River Dore running alongside park, part of which is straight from when it was re routed for the Golden Valley Railway line in the late 19th century. Some areas which were once the river bed still lie damp and are managed by us to provide for wildlife and are fenced to protect them.
Try one of our ‘Treasure Trails’ around the park and see some of the natural habitats.
When changes on park are essential we always incorporate careful planting of shrubs and trees both adding privacy for customers and habitat for wildlife, our latest plantings have included wild flower areas in unused areas of the Pitch & Putt and the dog walking/football field.

The facilities on park help reduce our carbon footprint with good insulation, thermostatically controlled heating, temperature restrictions and push top taps. Rain fall is managed with good drainage to reduce the risk of flooding and water butts for recycling where appropriate.
The large open spaces we have around the park of course need mowing and this along with garden waste is carefully composted and masked from general view, but this quiet environment created an exciting feeding ground of grubs and flies for our bird families. All our customers are encouraged to be a part of our Conservation and along with bird feeders and nesting boxes they are kept up to date with where new dipper and bat boxes have been located through notice boards around the park.
