Thorn cutting on Haresfield Beacon

The National Trust wanted us to cut down some areas of hawthorn and bramble to open up the site and prevent the thorn taking over. 6 of us worked with Tim (the warden).

Continuing from where we left off 2 weeks ago:

And tackling a new area:

Although there is still much work for Tim to manage this site, much progress was done by the end of the day:

To keep the area clean and tidy, we burned what we cut. The bonfire got very hot by the end of the day!
