Sat 24th October: Ashclyst Forest near Exeter 10.30 am - 2.30 pm.

From Exeter take the B3181 heading NE to Broadclyst. After passing through Broadclyst, carry on the road toward Cullompton for about 3 kilometres. Keep on the B3181 which takes you past the left hand turn to Killerton House. After 500 metres there is a turning off to the right opposite Budlake farm. Turn off right and carry on up the lane, past Hollis Head. Do not turn off into the small lanes at the next minor junction. Carry on up the lane until you reach a parking area on the right hand side of the lane at SS 997 001. There will probably be a National Trust Landrover in the parking area. The work area is about 50 metres to the south of the parking area.

The task will include removal of scrub growing in the bracken and coppicing of willows that are encroaching into the ride. Suggested tools: bowsaws, loppers, long-handled slashers.

A joint National Trust/BC event.
