Carved wooden animals

Carved wooden animals

 The development of this site continues with the addition of a small menagerie of wooden animals which  have been placed along the trails. These have been carved by a Sussex company called Woodland Products Ltd. Following a competition among local crafts people the winning contractors have completed a large bench, a rabbit, a fox and an owl. In addition there are a number of smaller creatures which have been carved on to dead tree branches along the trail.

 On Friday the 15th July a ‘Chalk and Cheese’ walk led by Dr June Chatfield proved popular, looking for the rare Cheese  snail and other molluscs. In the end the Cheese snail did show up along with both Glass and Garlic snails.

For more information about this site please ask for one of the two new trail leaflets at the QECP visitor centre reception or look on the Buriton Parish web-site http://buriton.info/news/chalkpits
