Snaky Lane Day

We had a excellent day yesterday at the snaky lane, the Snaky lane group had an informal open day cutting a hay meadow and welcoming the arrival of both the sheep and cows, which have come for a holiday.

During the day the group managed to get a lot accomplished, cutting the whole of one meadow, managed to cut the large section of the meadow with the motor scythe and move the cut hay of the meadow, the group had a good turn out with a few new families turning up to see what happens at Snaky lane, the children getting excited about seeing the livestock on holiday at Snaky lane.

Thanks for everyone who came to help and a big thanks to all the Snaky lane Group and Nell the sheep dog.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
