Green Estate has ‘appointed’ a new writer and illustrator in residence. Joe Shute and Liz Collins, whose book A Shadow Above: the fall and rise of the raven, has just been published by Bloomsbury will be leading a series of youth nature walks around the Manor Lodge site in partnership with local schools starting in the spring.

Both will also help out with artistic interpretations of the site to the wider public. Joe is a senior staff feature writer at the Daily Telegraph and author of its Saturday Weather Watch column. Liz is an illustrator, lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University, and radiographer. They both live in Sheffield and have a passion for exploring the natural world.
