About this Event

We would like to offer an opportunity to visit Bonnyrigg Hall farm. This session is particularly aimed at children who are working towards the international GCSE in Environmental Management.

The farm is about 10 minutes drive from The Sill. It is on a Site of Special Scientific Interest and some of the land borders Greenlee Lough. The land close to the lough is a raised peat bog and there are a huge variety of rare plants and animals within that ecosystem.

Come along and be taken around the farm by the farmer, David, and see the rare breeds they have on the farm as well as the peat bog and the boardwalk along the edge of the lough. The farm is also going to be part of a flood defence programme which will involve flooding areas of the farmland to protect areas downstream, and while on the farm you will get to see these areas too.

This is a “walk and talk” around the farm so please make sure that you wear sturdy shoes and outdoor clothing.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the ground it is not suitable for people with mobility issues.

Session time 10.30am – 12.30pm

Tickets are free but must be booked so we have an idea of numbers. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
