Hard Work At Handless
Members of the TTF accompanied Nick and Richard today when they went to Handless Hill. The area used to be used for forestry, but when the trees were cleared the Trust took it on. Some trees were planted at the bottom, then the area was fenced off to keep the sheep out and let the trees grow. Now the trees are grown and the area needs grazing again, so work was done today to remove the fence to allow the sheep in.
The fence was quite overgrown
It was a lot of work, thankfully it didn't rain this week!
