Sun 10th November: Little Breach Reserve near Culmstock 10.30 am - 2.30 pm.

Meet at the end of the lane leading to Purchas Farm (ST 108 154). Leave the M5 at junction 27 and take the A38 towards Wellington. After about 3 miles, just after passing over the M5, turn right onto the B3391 signposted Culmstock / Hemyock. After 1.1 miles turn left, signposted Woodgate / Beacon. Continue for 0.7 mile, going straight across 2 sets of crossroads and passing a ‘no through road’ sign and park where you can at the end of the lane. From here it is about 0.5 mile to the site (ST 115 155).

There is usually raking up to do after the brushcutter and also some scrub/small tree cutting. Useful tools to bring: rakes, general cutting tools. Some branch hayrakes will be available on the day.

Most of our winter work days are targeted at helping specific butterfly species but always benefit many other wildlife species that prefer more warmth and light that our clearing work provides. It is usually ok to just turn up on the day but if adverse weather threatens cancellation or for any other queries a contact number is provided. Participants can attend for just part of the day if they wish but should always tell the contact person if they leave early. Bring lunch, a drink, waterproof clothing, stout footwear or boots and gardening gloves.
