This pioneering partnership saved Gibraltar Point from the threat of development. Today it is well known for its impressive views and sheer scale and diversity of wildlife, and is recognised as an internationally important nature reserve.
Now, its history is told in a new book: The Story of Gibraltar Point by Barrie Wilkinson.
Barrie Wilkinson, former Trust Reserves Manager and long serving volunteer, first became involved with Gibraltar Point in 1952 at the age of 15. Barrie tells the story of Gibraltar Point through his researches, the recollections of those who have known and loved the place, and his own experiences of a lifetime’s involvement in the wildlife and with those involved with the use and management of the site.
The Story of Gibraltar Point is available in a limited edition hardback and softback from the Gibraltar Point Visitor Centre and Banovallum House, the headquarters of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust in Horncastle. All money raised from sales of the book directly support the work of the Trust.
