Gibraltar Rock planting project complete!

Having successfully covered the necessary area with a suitable layer of topsoil previously, we were able, finally after the winter rain subsided, to plant a mixture of native hedging along the inside of the fencing.

The current fence has previously been the subject of public dissatisfaction as it was deemed not in keeping with the areas’ natural beauty. It is hoped that, once the new hedging has become established in its new setting, the fence will then be removed completely allowing the various native species of 250 (total) Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Holly, Ivy, Elder, Hazel and Willow to act as a ‘natural’ barrier to safeguard the general public from the occasional rockfall. We were also able to slightly extend the natural barrier hedging outside of the current fencing.
