Report from Wapley Work Morning Sunday 17 September

We made good progress on our first work morning of the autumn. Seven of us split into two groups to tackle the vegetation on either side of the seasonal stream through the Ancient Woodland and to scrape out the stream bed, starting from each end.

However once again we found that the massive brambles in the middle were too much to do only using hand tools - we'll have to make alternative arrangements.

Instead we moved down onto the Common and removed some rather nasty blackthorn that the farmer hadn't been able to get at. There will be some more of that to deal with on a later workday.
