Two sites

Kingspool , Edge End
and Bladderwort Pond, Staple-edge Bungalows

 

Kingspool- From Coleford go through Mile End past the cemetery on the B4028 and take the first barrier on the right (beware fast road). Drive in 200 metres to park.

Bladderwort Pond- Take Speech House road from Coleford and after Dilke Hospital take the last forest gate ( with parking) on the right before Ruspidge Halt (Linear Park car park). Follow the main forest road for a couple of miles, past Staple edge Bungalows to the parking.

 

Two separate sites so please let Kate know which site you are going to as we need to spread out!

Kingspool involves cutting scrub in and around the pond and creating scrub fences to prevent boar access to parts, so wear wellies.

Bladderwort Pond involves removing invasive pond plants from the pond while dry and mending the fence so bring fencing tools, hammers etc. Wear wellies if going in the pond and prepare to get dirty!
