Sun 16th January: Chudleigh Knighton Heath (old railway area) 10.30 - 14.30.

Directions, from the A38 travelling from the Plymouth direction, take the exit slip for Chudleigh Knighton. At the top of the slip road turn left (heading toward Bovey Tracey). The gateway is the first pull-in 200 yards on the left. Park in the gateway near the dragonfly ponds and old railway at SX 839 769, or on nearby road where safe to do so.

The task will be to coppice small trees and bushes close to a large glade that has been cleared to encourage the population of pearl-bordered fritillaries. Bowsaws and loppers will be the most useful tools, but the DWT will also make some tools available.

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.
