Monkton Community Woodland

  • Description

    The Land Trust "Despite covering only 10 hectares Monkton Community Woodland delivers significant benefits to the local community thanks to the Trust's involvement. The woodland is on part of the former Monkton Coking Works so has a history of contamination. The site was restored by One North East using money from the Homes and Communities Agency's National Coalfield Programme. The Coalfield Progamme also provided the endowment which allows the Trust and its managing agent to manage the environmental liabilities and provide the added value activities...."
