The footpath through the wood has been completed; the steps leading up to the well from the Hudson Way have been refurbished complete with drainage to make them usable in the winter months. We have purchased, through Henley’s Nurseries, 400 woodland shrubs and they have been planted out in the area, as well as along the boundary fence. Mr Mike Warrener, a member of the Friends of St Helens Well Group, has made and installed 5 owl boxes.

The group has also recently installed 5 oak benches in and around the woodland path and will shortly be placing a seat on the Hudson Way facing towards the well for those who enjoy this picturesque location but cannot manage the steps. A donation towards the seat was kindly received from local resident Mr Arthur Harrison.

Those who have visited the area recently will have noticed a bin has been installed close to the interpretation board at the foot of the well – this bin is in memory of Sue Binks. A plaque is to be added shortly. Market Weighton Town Council and the Friends of St Helens Well have worked hard to refurbish this area with the hope that residents and visitors enjoy the surroundings and see it mature for future generations.
