There is a bit of history here, and a phantom newt somewhere, maybe or maybe not..

Either way a group of willing souls are in the process of restoring this area to it’s previously glory. To be honest it looks like it is having a bit of a bad hair day just now, but what a difference there will be come springtime.

This is how it looked in September 2019:

More effort required, to remove brambles, more brambles and invasive grass.

    If there are newts, this will make a better environment. If there are no newts, these improvements may encourage them. At the end of the day, it looks great. Thanks guys n gals
