Sun 17th January: Chudleigh Knighton Heath (old railway area) 10.30 am - 2.30 pm.


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

We will be coppicing and scrub clearing close to where a large glade has recently been created and Pearl-bordered Fritillary is present. Bow saws and other cutting tools will be useful but some DWT tools should be available on the day.

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.
