Land renewal works at the former Herrington Colliery. This huge and complex project comprised 25km of hedges, 17km of paths and bridleways, 40ha of trees and 5ha of water features. This along with the thousands of trees and shrubs that were planted, made Herrington Country Park one of the largest sites that Brambledown had undertaken. A lake was also created along with a giant amphitheatre and boardwalks. The lake attracted much wildlife back to the park. To think of what the site was before (a coal heap) the transormation into what is now the site of the Durham County Show is incredible. The scheme also included a 5 years maintenance package which Brambledown undertook and later a play area was also added.
