Living better with nature!

A rewilding habitat created during lockdown 2020

Local man Shaun Boyd has created a magnificent 15 acre wildlife site and gardens during lockdown which is now open to the public.

Shaun described the 15 acre wildlife site as hine “Garden of Eden” which he created in 2020 during lockdown and will be open for Charity on May25 and 26
A wildlife walk like no other.
As part of the National Garden Scheme, by visiting an opening your garden like Brockagh Wood, you’re not only going to enjoy a great day out – you’re also raising money to help those in need. During 2023, garden openings meant the National Garden Scheme could give over £3.4 million to their beneficiary charities.
By visiting Brockagh Wood, you’ll join a community of thousands of other like minded garden owners, all passionate about great gardens and raising money for great causes.
The garden includes a two acre pond, native wildflower meadows, marginal plants, water lilies, moorhens, mallard ducks and little grebes.
The one mile undulating walk around the perimeter of Brockagh Wood will enrich our lives and help us to reconnect with Mother Nature which for man is a key to a happy and healthy life.
Wheelchair access is available to the main pond but not the walk around Brockagh Wood. For more details, visit:
