About the event

Join us for our annual Barnes Lecture, with our 2021 speaker Derek Gow.   

Derek is a farmer turned nature conservationist. He wants to make a difference and therefore is in the process of rewilding some of his 300 acre farm. Derek has played a significant role in the reintroduction of the Eurasian beaver, the water vole and the white stork to England.  He is currently working on a reintroduction project for the wildcat.

Coombeshead Rewilding

Coombeshead Farm is changing from a traditional, highly managed human environment of livestock and vivid green pastures to a new landscape, one where habitats develop through natural processes. Where nature sets its course.

Farming has now ceased on 150 acres at Coombeshead. We are at the beginning of a new journey, one which will give the land an opportunity to relax, recover and re adjust.

Our vision and hope are that gradually, slowly, life will return. New life, not hemmed in by hedgerows or restricted to narrow verges but full and complete.
