    Himalayan Balsam Bashing

    Nature Conservation Volunteers

    This opportunity takes place on 22 Jun 2024

    Date: Saturday 22nd June 2024

    Time: 10:30am - 3:00pm

    Meeting place: Outside Pret

     

    Enjoy a few hours in the fresh air helping NCV remove Himalayan Balsam from the banks of Canley Brook!

    Himalayan Balsam is an invasive plant that grows rapidly in tall dense colonies by brooks and rivers. Balsam has large leaves that block sunlight, causing native plant species to die. When Himalayan Balsam dominates the bankside, biodiversity is reduced. With fewer plant species, the brook supports less wildlife, endangering creatures such as the water vole.  

    Gloves and training will be provided. But please wear suitable outdoor clothes that you don’t mind getting a little muddy. Your clothes must fully cover your arms, legs and ankles so that you are protected from nettles – long sleeves and jeans are ideal. We also recommend that you wear wellies or sturdy old shoes. You can borrow Wellington boots from Warwick Volunteers on the day.  

    We will be working along Canley Brook for this activity. Please be mindful and take precautions when working near water.

    We also encourage you to bring a packed lunch and a bottled drink. Light snacks will be provided :)

    We will be back on campus by 3pm. The activity will last for about 4 hours.

    Not Bagots Catle with Balsam

    (photo not representative of actual castle)

    Sir William Bagot, a distinguished nobleman of the time purchased the site of the former house in about 1381 and contructed the present stone castle in 1397.

    The castle was partially excavated between 1933-48 by the Coventry Archaeological Society. The foundations of the 14th century keep were exposed but nature then took over again and the castle was hidden by shrubs and trees.

    The present Custodian purchased the castle and set about clearing the site of vegetation and rubbish. With the help of donations and sponsorship, he consolidated the remains of the castle and summer pavilion, and opened the whole site to the public.

    The castle is open Weekends and Bank Holidays from April till October
