Historically, the thin soil over the tarmac remaining from this site has produced a flora quite different from that elsewhere on the Trust’s land. However, bramble and rough grass has begun to encroach on it.
Cutting out the brambles along the fence line proved a tough job to complete by hand but luckily Winchelsea National trust offered to help us out with a mower. In a relatively short time we were able to cut & rake the bramble and take the grass clumps right down. We may strip some soil off further.
