In the lead up to South Square Centre’s capital refurbishment project, it was discovered that there were three bats residing in the roof.
South Square Centre have been working with Brooks Ecological for the past 18 months to help ensure their safety and survival during the building works.
This April, we decided to give the bats a rather unique home and to rename them after the three famous Brontë sisters.
Heritage Assistant Chloe Moreton set to work designing a Bat Box with a difference and The Brontë Bat Box is a home that Charlotte, Emily, and Anne can call their own; a replica of the house in which they were born which stands a couple of minutes’ walk from South Square.
When the centre reopens in June this year, visitors will be able to see The Brontë Bat Box from the centre’s garden.
