The start of something beautiful

Leave a comment

It was a cold start to the day for the ConVols but after a slow start we got going and did a fantastic job of clearing the self seeded Sycamore. As you can see the gate way is now clear and the Castle walls can be seen for the fist time in a long time. Actually Sycamore is a good tree to grow in these exposed spots and thrives in the harsh conditions, unfortunately because of the damage done by tree roots , members of the public are using the cover of the trees to clime up onto the walls and certain other antisocial behaviour. So the decision was made by English Heritage /SBC to remove the trees closest to the wall.This will leave a wild life space and hopefully cure the problem of damage to the fabric of the castle
