Battle woods being ruined

Share this article

Battle Great Wood - a haven for children, dogs, horses and walkers.

Not nay more - the men cutting down trees have made sure of that.

Small paths are now impossible to walk along and we are told to keep to the main paths - what a joke! Have any of these men tried to walk on them?

These ruts are sometimes 12 inches deep and filled with water. On the top of the ruts you sink into ankle-deep mud.

The small paths are covered by branches and debris. Weren’t they meant to be cleared? Will the wood be made into a haven again?

After trying to put this point of view to one of the men they just started using sewer language.

Sincerely Pat, from Battle.
