Wetlands Header 3.5

With effect from Tuesday 19th November 2019 we are closing the concessionary route between Footpath 596 (Bushey Shaw) and Footpath 24 (Preston Grove). Ground conditions are deteriorating in Fraudings field and Jack Adams field and we wish to preserve the ground as much as possible. Whilst the field is closed we will be undertaking preliminary work to create a wildflower meadow. The reason for closure is that over the winter months the ground conditions are at their best for us to carry out clearing grass almost to the soil and spreading a substance to inhibit grass growth and allow wildflowers to flourish. This is a trial field. The work will be done over 2 days - 19th and 20th December and the field will remain closed to foot traffic from now on to see how the project fares. It is all part of the overall vision. We hope to do this in other fields if Fraudlings is a success.

Please respect this notice and do not climb the gates. All other fields are closed to the public and are private property.

We hope next Spring to have alternative routes open for residents to enjoy.
