Until the end of March we will be working on the area between the ornamental (fishing lake) and the carriage drive path. Historically this area was all heathland but that was lost after the EA dumped nutrient rich silt from the lake onto the soil.
Tasks will include:
removing bramble, ivy and understorey by cutting and pulling roots
removing leaf litter
thinning saplings and removing low value trees

This is part of a long term plan to open the canopy, make the space more accessible, de-nutrify the soil, restore the lost heath and create views between the path and the lake.

Southampton Common Forum is a focal point for issues affecting The Common for everyone who uses, enjoys or appreciates it.
