How very Daring of you!
These are the ratings from H.M.S. Daring who came along to do some work at Balaam's Wood. As tree fellers they make jolly jack tars, at one stage they struggled to fell a large dead tree with cross cut saws and when it finally started to fall it got tangled up with other trees. They were however very enthusiastic and got rid of a lot of holly which tends to clog up the site. For those of you who do not know about Balaam's Wood it is an ancient woodland which was coppiced during the middle ages to provide wood to build daub and wattle houses. It is a lovely spot to visit and walk and is now a Local Nature Reserve. Just one of the many attractions of Longbridge.
