railway cut backs

If you have been along the dismantled railway line in Easthope wood recently you may have noticed that it is looking a little different. We have been coppicing along the edges and felling trees to allow more light in, this will benefit both wildlife and recreational users. The bridleway is now much lighter and therefore more pleasant to travel along, this will also prove beneficial to butterflies next summer (if we get one). The job is also producing some firewood and hedgelaying stakes. There is a bit of tidying up to do including burning the brash, this may keep the volunteers busy for a few weeks!

 
A view has also been created, looking towards Caer Caradoc hill, this is how it looked as the sun set this afternoon.
