General Maintenance and Tidy Up
January 22 @ 9:30 am – 2:00 pm
During the winter months volunteers meet to carry out general maintenance around the Heritage Area. We carry out jobs, such as removing dead and dying trees and any branches which might be dangerous, fence repairs and drain clearing. We also cut back areas of overgrowth to allow the local plants to thrive.
Currently we are removing some of the internal wooden gates as the wood has started to rot and the gates no longer work as intended. They were originally intended to stop the sheep that grazed the area from wandering off, but as we no longer graze the sheep on the land the gates are not necessary.
We are also making some benches from a large section of ash tree which had to be felled last year. The logs have been positioned by the Tally House and at the ‘Junction’ panel by the stream.
