Lydford Old Railway BC reserve - winter clearance work for the Heath Fritillary & more.
Continuing the essential winter clearance work for the Heath Fritillary and other butterflies.
The main work will be raking up following the strimmer but there may be some scrub and small tree coppicing. Rakes and pitchforks will be available but you are welcome to bring your own tools if you wish. It is a half-mile mostly level walk to access the site. Meet in the National Trust’s Waterfall car park [SX 500 832] which lies a mile southwest of the main Lydford Gorge entrance.
For our work days we recommend bringing boots/wellies, gardening gloves, waterproofs, lunch and a drink. No need to book but a contact number is provided for any queries or to check if forecasted bad weather might cancel the event. Attendees can stay as long as they wish but should always inform the contact on the day if they leave early.
