Project: Dead-Hedge is a program of constructing these structures around the site to stop trampling of the ground flora and provide a habitat for insects and hedgehogs. We are using the cut brash from the line-side clearance by Network Rail and putting in posts and filled them with the cut martials.
The friends do regularly workdays from step construction to tree felling to improve the important areas from becoming scrub and loss of important grassland areas.
If you are interested in joining the Friends on one of their taskday check it out on our Spring-summer Workday 2019 page. https://garthorneroadnaturereserve.com/2019/04/08/spring-summer-workdays-2019/
