Cutting more grass

The thing that I like least about Richmond Council's approach to managing Ham Lands is the over mowing that reduces the wild areas into little more than garden lawns. Here we see the machines at work desecrating the grass by the tow path in front of Burnell Avenue.

To make things even worse this work was being done on the Late Summer Bank Holiday and walkers, like myself, who were trying to make the most of the last of the Summer sun were subjected to noise, dust and pollen.
