Sun 14th November: Chudleigh Knighton Heath 10.30 - 14.30.

Meet at Dunley Cross near Chudleigh Knighton [SX 837 775]. This is mid-way between Chudleigh Knighton and Bovey Tracey on the B3344 and a crossroads for Hennock, Bovey Tracey, Chudleigh Knighton and Kingsteignton. There are several laybys to park in around this junction on the Kingsteignton and Chudleigh Knighton sides.

We will be clearing scrub, removing some trees and raking up the litter. This will benefit Pearl and Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, which breed here. Useful tools to bring: rakes, bowsaw, loppers. Devon Wildlife Trust will bring some tools on the day.

A joint DWT/BC event

For winter events bring lunch, a drink, waterproof clothing, stout footwear/boots and gardening gloves. Bring recommended tools if possible though some are usually available on the day. If severe weather is forecast, check with the leader before travelling as an event could be cancelled.
