WOODLAND INITIATIVE

THE Parish Council has agreed to construct two pedestrian gateways and create a natural path through the strip of woodland it owns behind the pit wheel to enable residents and visitors to enjoy the amenity. It was agreed that no trees would be removed and the decision to establish a woodland accessible to the community may need to be reviewed if there are any incidents of misuse.

Trees and hedges are important wildlife habitats, so work on pruning the trees to improve appearance and access, and removing dead and diseased branchwood, will start in early winter [December/January] to allow birds to nest safely in spring.

Historically, it is believed the old 'Tankey' engine (train) went over the road along the line of the woodland.
