2018 Parish Walk Reports
18.05.18 Breech Wood walk - 2 hours. On a day of full sun, 19 walkers followed footpaths from the village hall through meadows to Turn Hill, then passed through Beer Wood (Somerset Wildlife Trust) and then along Wood Lane - to the call of the cuckoo. Being a non-firing day with red flags down, the footpath through Breech Wood (Forestry Commission), across fields and track to Standhill Road and on to the village. A lovely walk.
25.02.18 Breech Wood Recce
25.02.18 Led by Tony Whitford, Parish Walkers Katie, Lynn, Caroline and Amanda set out on a bitterly cold but sunny Sunday to reccy a future Parish Walk along Wood Lane, through Breech Wood (Forestry Commission) following the waymarkers. The waymarkers exit the wood where the footpath then leads to the MoD road out on to Mildmays. Breech Wood is an extensive area of woodland, with many ancient trees and rich in wildlife. When walking along Wood Lane in early February, a fox crossed the path only a few feet ahead.
