I unfortunately couldn’t make it to the walk myself on the 7th May, so office manager Gill passed on this account of the guided walk in the woods to. Ta muchly, Gill!
“We had a lovely evening – the weather was just right.
There are bluebells out – not masses but nevertheless there. Foxgloves in
abundance (but not flowering yet) where the boys have been clearing the
laurel & planting trees. Laurel is so invasive. Big clumps of primroses
everywhere too. Not too muddy under foot either. Up close & personal with a
week old baby calf – Ahhhh!
Very informative talk by the 3 boys – just so passionate about their farms –
it’s a real pleasure to hear. Saw Darrens racing track & heard how the boys
(Terry, Ian & Richard) in their not so green-friendly youth, used to slide
down the banks flattening the bluebells as they went! Saw & heard all about
the Victorian water pumping station that pumps the water up to Heligan by
water power – no electric!
We raised £80.50 for the Precious Lives Appeal. Enjoyed a delicious burger
&/or hot dog with a very welcome cup of tea.
A very pleasant evening was had by all & I hope we can do it again”
The Permissive Path is a beautiful place for a walk.
