2012 To Do List!

We're into our second New Year here in Benraw, and our thought are on what we plan to do this year.

Our Project continues to inspire, daunt, and delight in equal measure, and a morning 'tour of the estate' brings plenty of ideas, energy and enthusiasm to be getting on.

Here is a notional 'to do' list (from today's perspective anyway) for the next couple of months


  • complete vegetable garden - planting has already started!
  • clear the loose compost heap and remaining rubble
  • plant more trees - we're going to buy 130 native tree 'whips' from The Conservation Volunteers in Clandeboy
  • clear the American thorns from the front garden and seed more grass and lavender
  • start the greenhouse
  • create the composting toilet


  • replace doors and windows 
  • finish the floor
  • begin fit out
  • clear surroundings of rubble, etc.
  • create easy access


  • finish clear out of lower floor
  • conserve artefacts and furniture
Meanwhile, we are still open at the weekends, and other times by appointment, you're welcome to come and see what's happening.

So - watch this space - pictures to follow!
