Sensitive thinning in Ham Common Woods

Having suffered the shock of the major clearance between Ham Farm Road and Church Road I then crossed into the main section of Ham Woods and followed the main footpath that runs just north of Church Road and there things were much better.

The main evidence that work had been done was the large amount of new material spread over the path, including holly leaves and I had to look a lot harder to see what had actually been cut back to produce this. In the above picture you can see two new cuts about one third down and one quarter right.

Again there are stumps in this picture but the character of this section of Ham Common Woods is just as it should be.
