Welcome to the Manton Pit Woods Community Gateway Project online.

As part of the redevelopment of the area artists Jo Wheeler and Ian Jones are working with community groups to design a welcome gateway for the woods.

The gateway will be installed by the new car park at the end of June, with a community celebration to mark the event.

You can follow the project’s developments here – we’ll be posting images and updates on our progress, and hope that you’ll contribute by sharing your comments, photos and stories too.

The project is funded by Nottinghamshire County Council’s Local Improvement Scheme to develop the woods as a great green space for everyone.
