The Hay Wain
Our hay wain is a tad different from the one John Constable painted in 1821.
We needed four piled truckloads of hay or rather, recently cut grass, to clear the material mown from the path up the hill, under the pylon lines.
It's not quite bowling green standard but at least walkers can get through.
This year our volunteers, including the guys from Essilor, have kept all the paths open better than last year. Next year we can hopefully not only keep the paths clear but also mow some of the other areas of long grass.. If we don't it will gradually become scrub and then woodland, and we'll lose the flowers and insects associated with grassland.
