South Chard Gravel pits - EuCAN Somerset Volunteers

South Chard just south of Perry Street


This is a fascinating area of former gravel pits now flooded and heavily vegetated where there is a very good bird and insect fauna. (which has just finished digging out the last of the gravel from other areas of the site). We will need registered chainsaw and brushcutter operators in addition to handtool users and haulers.
Meet at 9.30am at the point shown on the google map – the main haul road will have been dug up by the time we arrive so we are going to meet in the carpark at the entrance of the gravel company HQ.
Bring lunch, your own refreshments and working gloves.
Let me know if you need or can offer a lift.
It would help us to know in advance if you are planning to attend this task, please let me know.
