Good turn-out with Linda, Anna, Wayne, Mick and myself. We had two brush-cutters on the go and really pushed back the summer growth and scrub.
We burnt off all the brash as Mick and Wayne cut it back. We just need to keep clearing all the way up to the bridge that goes over the greenway.
Last year we left scrub, but this year, we have decided to rip it all out.
This is the nice open glade that we will want in sections that are in cutting.
We will keep the trees and the scrub around them, and can see what comes up in the cleared bits in the spring.
We have started to mow a strip each side of the dirt path. This will make it easier for walkers and cyclists to access the path.
I walked down past Potford’s Dam and towards Dunchurch Station by the A45. This area is pretty clear and very dry. I will do the management plan for this section in the week and we can crack on with it.
Thanks to all who made it today.
