Box Moor Trust (BMT) Maps

The land along the River Bulbourne (and other nearby sites), managed by the Box Moor Trust in Hemel Hempstead, has very handily been split into named meadows, moors and woods. This makes it much easier to describe where a bird/flower/insect/etc has been seen/heard. A list of the names and their locations can be found below.
