Darkhill Iron Works

Grid Ref SO588087



The team were split into three groups. One group used rakes to remove the dead bracken from around the old iron work buildings in the hope of clearing the ground and allowing some flowering plants to grow. We also collected rubbish and removed it in a large bag from this area. Another group were busy removing some damaged trees and the other group continued with the butterfly corridor.







The damaged trees had all been marked up and this is on the track leading to the gate for the Iron Works.





This is in the Iron Works and shows the piles of dead bracken which have been raked. The piles will be left as this is a vibrant spot for adders and lizards and it is likely that they will snuggle into the piles.






The track to the gate of the Iron Works is much more open now.
