Scything at the Viewpoint

For last Sunday's work morning we had another scything session. The grass is tough as it is not only this year's growth but also the underlying mass of last year's grass. You can see in the picture below, that Rex and Will are making a real difference.

Of course the cut grass then has to be raked up. 
Heavy work necessitating a break for coffee. 

Meanwhile some of the other volunteers had been clearing the footpath between posts 6 and 7, and Allan and Derek had been burning up the blackthorn we cut earlier in the season. It's too prickly to leave lying around or to include in a dead hedge.
