Sat 23rd October: Ashclyst Forest near Exeter 10.30 - 14.30.

Directions from Exeter, take the B3181 to Broadclyst. Pass through the village and carry on toward Cullompton for about 3 km. Pass the turning on the left to Killerton House. After 500 metres, there is a turning off to the right opposite Budlake Farm. Take that right hand turning and carry on up the lane, past Hollis Head. You come to an island with large oak in the centre. Keep to the right hand lane and ignore a small turning to the left after around 500 metres. Carry on around a right hand bend until you reach Deadlands car park at opposite Sprydon Beacon SX 998 993 where we will assemble.

The task area has yet to be agreed with the National Trust, so those of you who would like to volunteer are asked to contact Peter Beale by email, for further information, directions and a map.

A joint National Trust/BC event.
