Braunston Bat Boxes

Our Heritage Lottery funding for 2019 has been confirmed and this allows us to make the blocking work inside the church permanent. The bats can continue to roost in the south aisle roof, but this work prevents them getting into the interior of the church and will stop the fouling of the pews, walls and floors, so everyone – bats and humans alike – is happy! Additionally, the funding covers the installation of a bat box on a pole in the churchyard extension paddock, which we hope will provide an additional roost for the bats outside the church. The blocking work, and hopefully the bat box installation as well, is planned for early April.
