Oxton Toad Conservation

“The toad closure came about when Bob and I cycled down Beanford Lane in Spring 1999 and found squashed toads all over the place. I said that we must close the road to save the toads next year and amazingly the Notts.CC. agreed and it was the first time that a road had been closed for toads in the country. I close it each March but the cost is around £700 hence the appeal not only for money but also patrollers for Blind Lane which is another toad crossing.”
Margaret Cooper, March 2011
