Sun 28th February: Lydford Old Railway Reserve 10.30 am - 2.30 pm.


Continuing the essential winter clearance work for the Heath Fritillary and other butterflies. Main work will be raking up following the brushcutter but also some coppicing of trees and scrub. Rakes and pitchforks will be available but you are welcome to bring your own tools if you wish – small saws and loppers will also be useful for the coppicing work. It is a half-mile mostly level walk to get to the site.

Meet in the National Trust’s Waterfall car park [SX 500 832] which lies a mile southwest of the main Lydford Gorge entrance.

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.
