When Speedicus Triplicatum reported, in a comment, about the scale of scrub clearance in our local heathland, I had to see for myself what he describes as the result of scrunchy-munchy machines.
Wrapping up warm – I’d be embarrassed to tell you how many layers of clothing, so I’m not going to – I ventured out for a longish expedition to see the extent of the scrub clearance.
Speedicus is correct. The work is extensive. It pleasingly restores the views over heathland from the various heathland paths. No more walking through corridors of gorse and saplings. Click on images to enlarge.
