Altidore Castle holds final biodiversity walk of the year

Altidore Castle, in Kilpedder, held its final biodiversity walk of the year last weekend. The walk around the ancient and newly woodland was done by Philip Emmet and his son Thomas. There were twenty five people on the two hour walk which looked at trees, insects and rewilding.

Philip Emmet said “its a great resource we have here in Altidore and we love to share it. The walk combines our ancient woodland with the native trees we have more recently planted and there is a great variety of biodiversity to be seen”

Thomas Emmet said “A big part of the future of Altidore will be rewilding the estate and being able to show people what we have done already in the thirty years Altidore has been organic as well as what we have planned is a great pleasure. Education about rewilding processes and on a more simple level connecting people with nature is a huge motivation for our work”.

Altidore will be open again for biodiversity walks and house tours in 2025.
