2022 - Bridlepath closed in Gopher Wood temporarily

Huish Manor Farm will be making a start on felling the ash trees in Gopher Wood this week and will close the bridlepath (HUIS 15) for safety while work is in progress.  Most of the affected trees are at the west end of the path; the work is not expected to take too long.  Natural England have asked the landowner  to leave any felled trees clear of the bridle path but not to remove them from the wood.  There may also be some trees that can  e left standing but reduced to a safe height.  All this will give a rather untidy look to Gopher for a while but should give homes to more bugs, beetles, birds, funghi etc!
