The fire burnt well and kept us busy all morning.

A really frosty morning and the piles of old wood are evident!

Castlemaine Depot, Parkend

Grid Ref SO622082

The main object for this day was to burn the old wood we had previously cut. The site is now far more open and should encourage the butterflies, birds and wild flowers.

We finished at lunchtime and went for a Christmas buffet at the Miners Arms in Whitecroft which was excellent!
