New homes in Telford for creatures great and small

Date: Friday 18 February 2011

Taylor Wimpey’s sought-after Stocking Farm Barns new homes development in Telford is offering fantastic lifestyle opportunities to home-hunters of all shapes and sizes in Shropshire!

Creatures great and small will be able to call this beautiful Telford property development home, thanks to the efforts of the leading housebuilder to provide the local bat population with accommodation and access to suit their needs.

One of the special measures introduced at Stocking Farm Barns, an exclusive collection of five beautiful new homes for sale in Telford within the popular Lightmoor Village community, is the creation of no less than 76 ‘bat houses’.

Within the immediate development of barn-style houses for sale in Telford, and located in strategic elevated locations across the community as a whole, the purpose-built boxes will provide four different species of bats with a safe place to call home for many years to come.

Finding the right type of accommodation has been a careful process, with specialist bat experts designing the bat houses, which include a heated home for raising young, as well as a cosy roost for adults of one of those species.

The boxes were put up before the winter hibernation started along the bat flight paths to help them navigate their way to their plush new accommodation.
