Directions meet in Dragoon Close (road sign missing) on the Heathfield Industrial Estate, grid ref SX 823 764 (postcode TQ12 6TU). From the A38 take the A382 towards Bovey Tracey. After about 400 yards turn right at the traffic lights into Battle Road. After about another 300 yards turn left into Cavalier Road.

We shall be raking, clearing and coppicing at Teignbridge District Council’s Heathfield Reserve to maintain the open and warm heathland there. The work has benefited Silver-studded Blue in the past. Some cutting tools, like loppers and shears would be useful. Rakes will be available or bring your own.
