Ketton is full of trees - some huge, some rare but many planted by Mr Burroughes in the early 1900s. He lived at The Cottage and owned Stable Field and Priory Field. These are now both managed by the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust, who also manage the Ketton Quarry SSSI on behalf of Hanson.
This is an interactive map of some of the trees around the village and parish. The Ketton Green Spaces Group are keen to support the protection and planting of the right sort of trees in the right places.

The TiCL app is available in both the Google play and the Apple stores.

 

The TiCL app is location-based. So if the user is in Ketton and opens the app, we are at the top of the list. It can guide you to the nearest locations and there is a little additional information and a picture at each location. Not all of the posted locations are in Ketton.

TiCL allows a user to both CREATE and ENJOY:

  • imaginative and fun 'trails', 'safaris' and 'treasure hunts'

  • accessible information at points of interest, 'destination' information and simplified event navigation

  • 'geo-caching' opportunities 'find me' games and much more!
