Description

The large roof space in the derelict 18th century kitchens at Bryanston is the only known breeding site for the greater horseshoe bat Rhinolophus ferrum-equinum in Dorset and the colony is one of only 7 remaining in Britain. In addition to the building being used for breeding in summer, juveniles use the old chimneys and a tunnel during the autumn and winter. The estimated national population of this species is some 2–3000 animals, confined to south-west England and west Wales.
