Princess Anne’s Plantation – part III

Some lovely shots of Clipper Down and Pitstone Hill on a summer’s day.

On Thursday the team were removing more of the wire netting from the redundant fence line, but the gate posts proved to be immovable.

Clipper Down is let out to Mr Roe at Down Farm, who in turn lets it out the grazing to Mr Leach of Town Farm for his sheep. Lawrence may well have plans for more intense grazing here to encourage the wild flowers – an early gentian and bee orchid were recorded this year.
