TOTLEY SWIFT GROUP

 

The Friends of Gillfield Wood have been spreading their wings and have set up a Swift Group in Totley.

 

We hope to put up more Swift Nest boxes around the village in the spring of next year, before May 2024. If you are interested in purchasing a nest box and having it fitted to your property, please find out more from swiftsoftotley@outlook.com.

Gillfield Wood - known locally also as Gillyfield Wood was first documented in 1561 as ‘a springe wood called Jyll felde’ but is certainly much older. Sinuous in shape and following the Totley Brook, it is at the edge of Sheffield near the Peak District National Park, lying on the boundary between both Totley and Holmesfield and South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. Gillfield is a peaceful wood, mostly replanted with American (red) oak and larch in the 1960’s but retaining much of its ancient flora including swathes of bluebells and wood anemones in spring.
