Conservation is essential to the ethos of Allendale Estates. A wide diversity of nationally important habitats occur on the estate, and our conservation works cover important moorlands, sensitive wetlands, semi-natural woodland and productive farmland.
We are currently returning 100 acres of coniferous woodland to its original habitat of heather moorland to enhance greater bio-diversity. Together with Natural England and Durham University, we are working to regenerate damaged and degraded moorland plant species.
Shooting, along with its valuable contribution to game conservancy, has been a passion of the Allendale family for generations. The estate gamekeepers aim to deliver wider bio-diversity and a more sustainable future for a great many species.
