The DPA Conservation Team gathered in Princetown on Thursday 12th February to do some clearance work in the churchyard.
The main problem was that the grass had not been cut for some time.
The volunteers set to work brush-cutters and hand tools.
Meanwhile ….. at the top end of the churchyard, two young beech trees had been blown over and were “hung up” precariously in a fir tree.
Two wind-blown beech trees were a bit of a handful to take down safely. They were “hung up” in a fir tree where they might fall at any time to the detriment of any passers by.
One of the considerations was that the tree should not damage a young tree growing nearby, in a tree guard, seen in the bottom centre of the photograph above.
Thanks to Adam Sparkes for the photographs.
