Balsam Removal

June 9 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Himalayan Balsam Removal @ Fox Cub Field

Join us for this meditative afternoon session picking out the invasive non native Himalayan balsam from this wild field to prevent it suffocating the native meadow species. Everyone is welcome to help, no need to book and no prior experience needed. Do wear shoes for wet ground as it is boggy even in dry weather, and wear gardening gloves.

Directions to Fox Cub Field;
Locals will access the field via the basins, but as the footpath is currently closed due to health and safety reasons, we cannot officially direct you from this side. Fox Cub Field is a small field between the railway and Fox’s Factory; near Thunder Bridge. Access from Fox’s Field from the Millstream Gardens side; What3words ///phones.card.corrupted however please walk or cycle as there is no parking. You can park in the car park behind “one stop”. The nearest postcode to the Tonedale entrance side is TA21 0DH, and you can also access via the field gate on Linden Hill. Walk across Fox’s Field to the far end where the railway line is, across a small bridge over the river, the entrance to Fox Cub Field is straight ahead, you do not need to go through the tunnel under the railway.
