Wigpool FC/GWT Reserve

Grid Ref SO653193

 

 

 

Wigpool heathland on a windy day! We were moving up the hill to take out the birch and herbicide the stumps. Quite a large team turned up on this day so we made good progress over the area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fire was started at the beginning of the day. There are some quite remarkable fire lighting men in our team who can get a fire lit in seconds even when it is wet and windy!

 

 

 

 

Our GWT Ranger with his dog!

He is surveying the acreage we have to clear and contemplating further maintenance of the site.

 

 

 

 

The sun came out in the afternoon and the fire is starting to die out.
