Fencing Starts

Monday, September 11th 2017

Today was the day when the fencing started to go in on the heath, installed by a cheery team from Len Porter: The new fence line was marked out with small posts and then uprights were put into place. They were knocked in using a post driver on their tracked vehicle. This is a handy piece of equipment for minimising damage to our heath, as I’m told the pressure put on the ground by the tracks is less than that of a human foot!

Finishing touches were done to the posts by hand to ensure they were even and by the end of the day parts of the fence had all four rails.

There’ll be more fence to come tomorrow…!
