Ranger’s spring update for Brentmoor Heath and Folly Bog

Ben Habgood, the Surrey Wildlife Trust Ranger for Brentmoor Heath and Folly Bog, has posted his spring update notice on the gates and noticeboards. In his notice [click on image to expand] he says,

The first of the four Bronze Age burial barrows has been sensitively worked on to remove the taller vegetation from the tumuli. The military ditch created to protect these features has also been cleared to improve the view of the area.

I visited the barrows to see the improvements. Good work. If I’m allowed to comment, I’d like those that take saws to cut down the scrub, such as gorse, would cut nearer to the ground, and not leave trip hazards everywhere.

  1. Agreed about the Trip-hazards issue ! Especially bad when paths thru the trees are cleared by volunteer working-parties ….. have the knee to prove it !
