Monday 16 October

A cold but bright and sunny morning saw ten members meet at the Barn, and the following tasks were identified and carried out.

We carried on the pruning of the trees behind the Barn; some were overhanging the delicate Roof.

Three members went to the dry-stone wall along the edge of Gulley’s Meadow which had fallen over either by natural causes or from people who wanted access into the wood.  Quite a bit of stone had to be retrieved from the wood before reconstruction could start.  We did manage to get a few stones into position but it will take a few weeks to complete.

Last week the Greenkeeper had requested we help with a collapsed side of a stream that runs on the Course. This stream is the outflow from the three Abbey Ponds and runs into Abbey Brook then into the Sheaf. The Team dug out the Stones that had collapsed, re-laid them, and then replaced the soil and grass.
