Thanks to all the volunteers who came along to help us plant trees and shubs in the riverside area around the watermill at York Castle Museum at the weekend.
Work has been going on all winter on landscaping the area along the River Foss so visitors can explore along the bank and also learn more about the remains of the former York Castle next to the site.
We appealed for volunteers to come forward and help us put in trees and plants next to the new pathways and around the mill.
Raindale Mill originally stood in the North York Moors and was rebuilt next to the River Foss behind the museum.
It is now back in full working order and will reopen to visitors later this Spring.
Thanks to all those who came and helped at the weekend – we managed to plant around half the trees and will be doing it all again on Saturday, 24 March.
