Since taking ownership in 2004 Joy and Akeel have added to the property and recently acquired 100 acres around the house. This consolidates Peatmoor Wood with land between Pyrford Road, the Wey Navigation Canal and the Pyrford Marina up as far as Dodd’s Bridge. Both Joy and Akeel have a passion for nature and plan to hold the land for ‘wilding’. Currently they are planting a hawthorn hedge to mark their boundary across the old Twisted Stone property. They note that in the 3 months they have owned the land there has been a noticeable increase in sightings of deer, teal ducks, lesser, greater spotted and green woodpeckers. A barn owl is also calling at night and there is a wonderful flock of starlings on the property.
