What if there was no FOLK?

  1. Important wildlife would have been lost due to open limestone grassland being replaced by scrub and woodland.
  2. The quality of people’s visits to the site would be very different and many views would have been lost
  3. Grazing might not have been introduced.
  4. Much important site management work would not have been carried out.
