There's another of the popular Creeklink walks happening this coming weekend. It will be led by local residents Mick Delap and Neil Sinclair and takes place on Saturday morning 18th June at 11:15 (for an 11:30 departure) from The Old Joinery, Norman Road.
Tickets for this free walk for local residents and friends/family are available on Eventbrite on a first come, first served basis.
The approximately 90 mins walk will be followed by a presentation back at The Old Joinery where hot food and drink can be purchased. Places on the original walk were quickly snapped up, so please get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
Well, May, with its green fizz, and its tuneful blackbirds, has gone. It’s a time when the number and variety of trees in the Triangle always surprises – and excites. So waking up the other day to the sound of a chain saw was depressing. We know so little about the Triangle’s trees. And it would be tragic to lose them while our backs were turned. When the first Lockdown arrived, in spring 2020, a group of Triangle residents started sharing observations of Triangle birds – which produced a Birds of the Ashburnham Triangle Check List of 35 species. You can see it on our Green page). But how many species of trees do we have? And what are the stand outs? The largest, the oldest, the rarest? Your favourite? I think I may know the tallest. And the current guardian of what we think is the oldest – a Mulberry that may be as much as 300 years old – tells me that under his care, it’s hanging on. Just. Surely time, in this tree-oriented Jubilee year, for Triangle Tree Check List – to set alongside the Bird Check List.
