Binley Project Booklet and Seminar

Project Booklet

The central output of the Binley project is a 16-page full-colour booklet showcasing some of the key themes and main findings from the project interviews.

The booklet was made possible through the award of Public Engagement funding by the University of Warwick, the tireless efforts of the project volunteers, and the creative flair of our designer Steve.

Printed copies are available from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.

Project Seminar

On 1 December 2021, we held a seminar about the project at the University of Warwick. A recording of the session will be made available soon.

The gates are tall and made of black metal, depicting a wheel-shape pattern and topped with the nature reserve's name, 'Claybrookes Marsh', named after two miners who died when a section of the colliery collapsed on them.
