Blickling, St Andrew
Home of the Boleyn family and the Marquesses of Lothian, we’re working to protect the many brasses and monuments from bat-related damage.

An active community church just outside Huntingdon. We’re commissioning full surveys of the bats and the church heritage to see how we can help here.
