Bark Rack Woods

Grid Ref SO 5411 1251

 

This was the first time we had ever been in Bark Rack Woods. The woods are set in the steep valleys of Highmeadow forest near to Staunton. We were taking down tree guard cages in the bluebell woods.

 

These are the old style tree guards and we were amazed to hear that they had been round the trees since 1975 - nearly 50 years ago!

The steep sided valleys here are very popular with the mountain bikers who have made many small trails so we needed protection from them if they came hurtling down towards us!

Piling up the old fencing which will be collected onto a truck and trailer late.
