Temporary footpath closure at Neptune Wood, November 2019
We will be temporarily closing the wildflower meadow, which is accessed from Neptune Wood, on Friday 29th November for 2-3 weeks.
The meadow provides a great habitat for local wildlife, including a variety of bees, butterflies and other insects, and is a much loved dog walking area. In order to maintain the biodiversity and wildflower populations in the meadow, it is essential that it is grazed by sheep.
Unfortunately there have been a number of dog attacks on sheep whilst they are grazing in the meadow in the past so, as a result, we have taken the decision to close the meadow to the public throughout the upcoming grazing period, beginning on 29th November. This is a necessary measure to ensure the protection of our livestock.
Thank you for your support and apologies for any inconvenience.
