An area of open land, once famous for housing a nuclear weapons base, is being restored to its natural state.

Greenham Common in Berkshire became a focal point for 19 years of anti-nuclear protests after women peace campaigners set up camp there in 1981.
The 1,000 acre-site, is now being transformed by volunteers as part of the BBC's Breathing Places project.
Conservationists hope their work will help protect rare and endangered wildlife species in the area.
Derek Cutt, a volunteer conservationist, remembers the days when the 96 missiles were housed at the former US weapons base on Greenham Common.
He said: "A lot of the local people I feel were not very keen on the peace protest and the peace protesters.
"I must say they never did me any harm and frankly I'm quite glad to see the back of the nuclear weapons."
The former control tower is among only a few buildings from the weapons base which remain at the site.

Andy Coulson-Phillips, of West Berkshire Council, is a ranger working on the conservation project.
He said: "It's a superb place to come, absolutely beautiful. It's covered in wild flowers in the spring and summer.
"There's butterflies, there's birds everywhere. You've got 1,000 acres that you can just get lost in, it's fantastic."
