1 April 2018 A walk to the ponds

The weekly Sunday project of volunteer work in the park was titled 'Acid Grassland'. This involved cutting of grassland areas on Coneyvale and the main path on the slope of Barn Hill. Photos below (© John Parker) show the clearance of brambles with views before and after the project.
