The permissive footpath through the Earth Trust meadow near Neptune Wood will be closed for approximately six weeks from Monday 7th August.
This meadow supports an abundance of wildflowers and associated wildlife; grazing with sheep and cattle at certain times of year, including late summer, is essential for maintaining the populations of wildflowers.
In the past there has unfortunately been a number of dog attacks on sheep whilst they have been grazing in this field; therefore the footpath will be closed whilst the sheep are grazing here.
The paths through Neptune Wood and up towards Broad Arboretum and the Earth Trust Centre remain open.
The Earth Trust apologises for any inconvenience caused and thanks you for your understanding.
If you have any queries, please contact the Earth Trust office: 01865 407792 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
