A recent project by the National Trust to improve access across the Cornish headland is officially open and will continue to welcome visitors throughout the winter. The aim of the project was to open access to the iconic headland so more people could experience the dramatic headland views. Investment into facilities and the landscape will mean the area can welcome disabled visitors or people with limited mobility, who might have considered the area too challenging to visit. Mike Simmonds, lead ranger says 'we're continually looking to create solutions for accessibility that are creative and sensitive to the surroundings. The National Trust is for everyone, and we want to make it easy for disabled visitors to enjoy the places we care for.

The National Trust reveals blossoming ambitions for cities, including Plymouth, as Project Blossom starts to take root around UK. The ambition of Project Blossom is to create inspirational green spaces in and near urban areas to connect more people to nature and to create more spaces for hope and reflection. The local National Trust team have been working with Plymouth City Council on ideal places for the project to take place in the city. The Plymouth site will be located on the coast at Devil's Point, overlooking Plymouth Sound, the region's first National Marine Park, and adjacent to Barn Pool bay, where Charles Darwin set sail from in 1831. The site is on the South West coastal footpath and has local significance as it's the place where families come to wave off members going to sea on naval operations. The trees will be planted in a semi circle design and will be used to highlight the blossoming meadows below the waves in the seagrass beds just offshore. Native wildflowers will be planted around the site, along with hardy blackthorn to withstand the harsh coastal weather and more ornamental trees providing colour and floral-framing for the stunning Plymouth Sound views. The aim of the design is to create a beautiful, landscaped space on what is currently an area of exposed coastline,connecting people with nature on the land and within the National Marine Park.... read more
