The woodland at Town Barton Farm has been receiving some much needed attention. Staff have been pulling out dead wood and cutting back undergrowth and making log piles to create wonderful homes for insects and beetles. Trees that have died or have been cut to allow light in are chipped on site and laid on the tracks through the woods. The wood is also home to red and fallow deer and they can be seen grazing in the surrounding fields in the early morning or at dusk.
The woods at Paccombe Farm provide an ideal habitat for deer, badgers, rabbits and foxes. Frogs, newts and toads live in the marsh areas as well as in and around the wonderful woodland pond. During May the woodland becomes a carpet of bluebells and in the summer months colourful rhododendrons and beautiful wild orchids are in full bloom.
