Wood Felling in the Forest opens new views

2014-12-05 16.50.44There is one part of the forest that has recently been clear felled. It takes just 2 men and some really clever machines to do what would have taken many men a long time to do in the 1950s. Here the lengths are stored ready for a wagon to collect for processing. Once the area has been cleared new views are opened up for a time before the new planting has taken hold.

The view towards Allendale

P1020177 (800x600)This is the view from the farm over towards Allendale where they have a New Year’s tradition of carrying flaming barrels of tar round the town on people’s heads!!!
