Work Party on the spring head. 23rd July 2017.

The life blood of the Marsh are the springs which rise up from deep down in the Chalk. The main spring head had become badly poached by cattle. Volunteers had put in place a new fence to exclude cattle and today's task was to cut down the vegetation and at least partially reinstate the spring head channel.
The vegetation has been cleared so that the cattle will not be tempted to get through the fence to eat it and also it will give less aggressive and more interesting plants a chance to thrive.
