Results from our working party in march now published

Just released is our set of before and after photos of our last month working along Penpole Point towards the Dial. As always it is so difficult to really give an impression with these  photos of quite how much has been done. I think everyone was “feeling the burn” at the end of this month’s working party as we cleared the brambles and undergrowth back as far as the estate wall below the stone dial on Penpole Point. Perhaps the most telling of the images are those taken from the wall looking up towards the dial, but we recommend you go and take a look for yourselves now we’ve reached that goal!

A few of the photos are shown here, but for the full gallery head here

    Coo! What a dramatic transformation! Wish I could have joined you … I love the deforestation thing (in a good cause of course!) I am known in Pembrokeshire National Trust for my ‘Slash and Burn’ skills. Well done everyone. I know just how much hard work it has taken – especially those sections on the slope!
