Garden Habitats


Studio 12 is home to Mark Bradley, a highly skilled producer of wildlife habitats.

Mark uses locally sourced wood to create intriguing looking homes for birds and other wildlife.

Among his creations are ladybird towers, bug boxes, hedgehog homes, bat boxes, tree creeper and regular bird boxes as well as the more traditional bird table.

He also sells bee boxes, beehives, toad houses, bird feeders & multi-chambered sparrow boxes.

Mark keeps a large selection of habitats in stock at his studio in the Lower Courtyard but is also happy to discuss customers own designs and make to commission.
