Christleton Village Pit Group

The Christleton Pit Group comprises volunteers from the Parish who have been maintaining a body of water known locally as “the Pit” for some 30 years.   The objectives have changed over the years but have centred on

  •  to maintain vegetation cover to provide an area of open water visible to the public, and used by wildlife;
  •  retain the area at the back of the pit for a wildlife reserve and
  •  create and maintain safe pond edge to minimise erosion and provide a natural barrier

To achieve these objectives takes considerable effort.  The autumn/winter working party dates to continue the restoration of the Little Heath grassed area will be available shortly.

The Pit Group welcomes new members.  If you would like to join us either contact David Cummings (332410 email
