In preparation for new planting in the iconic clump we’ve erected a temporary deer fence to protect the new trees. It will be supported by a park railing for longer-term protection.
The trees (up to 250 of them) are being contributed and planted by a wonderful group called the The Conservation Volunteers. It’s an exposed site, with south westerly wind ripping through. With some vandalism, and sheep and deer wandering through at will there’s no undergrowth for protection and no self-seeded new growth. So the new planting will need protection.
Thanks to Paul and Gerard Robinson for a great job putting up the fence. Their sheep graze the Roundhill, and produce excellent Bath organic lamb: highly recommended.
We’ve included a gate to get access to the clump for clearing and planting. If you would like access (eg to visit some memorial inside the ow fenced off clump) please contact us by email or call the managing agents Strutt & Co.
