Hamble Common scrub clearance

Event Details

Coppicing in the NE of the Itchen Valley Country Park as we have done in previous years. Chainsaws on duty and stacking up of dead hedges.

The Rangers at IVCP have asked us to change location and help out on the meadow at Hamble Common, an SSSI. This is the southern tip of Eastleigh Borough.

Task leader Geoff.

The task is clearing a mixture of trees, gorse and bramble from the meadow, with a bonfire if the wind direction is favourable. All power tools of destruction, bow saws and loppers on duty please. Take-home wood approved but carry to the car is rather far.

A new site to end the year.

Outline of work areas. We’ll be working on the eastern defined area.

As it was 20 years ago.
