It’s good to be back!

It’s good to be back on the A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A RANGER blog!

After spending two years living and working on the National Trust’s Lanhydrock estate in Cornwall, I have returned back up north to work for the Trust as a Ranger, here in the beautiful North York Moors. I began my career here as an Academy Ranger back in 2011.

It’s nice to return to where it all started for me. Coming back has made me appreciate just how amazing this part of the world really is!

I’ve been very busy so far, time has really flown over since I began in May. I’ve been getting to know the sites we manage again (which have slightly changed since I was last here). There are those sites I was already familiar with from my previous time working for the team, including one of my favourite places in the world, Roseberry Topping. And then there are the sites which are quite new to me – Bransdale and Bridestones.

Re-acquainting with old colleagues/volunteers, as well as new, has also been especially rewarding – the team here are truly ace and I look forward to working together as we continue to manage our wonderful places into the future.

So, keep your eyes peeled for more posts from me covering what we’re getting up to on the property!
