Chalk Farm Fence


Yesterday I was joined by the Thursday BVCV group. The task was to finish of replacing the broken & rotten fencing at Chalk Farm. The main aim of the fence is to deter people driving across the grass to get to the Fisheries.


The Digging started off well until we got about 1 foot down and then got to old bricks and flint stones. The Volunteers persisted and we finished of the section from the entrance gate to the pedestrian path.


Finally Assistant Ranger Bobbie came along to clean up the tops of the fence posts with the chainsaw. I would like to thank all of the volunteers who assisted in the task.

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’.
