Edgehills GWT Reserve

Grid Ref SO662158

The team met at the far end of Edgehills GWT Reserve which is an area where the Exmoor ponies are often found although they were not there today. Our task was to continue with the heathland restoration which was to cut and burn the small birch over a very large area.

The winter weather WAS kind to us today! Complete sunshine although very cold!


Starting the day and clearing all the small larch and birch.

The view across the site where our clearance can clearly be seen.



Our GWT rangers provided us all with fish and chips which was very much appreciated!

We were supposed to have fish and chips just before Christmas but it was one of those very rare days when we had to cancel the day out due to deep snow and ice.
