New Deer Park Wood entrance post

At Deer Park wood we need occasional site access for vehicles, but not for unauthorised traffic. When we took on the running of the wood in 2010, it was scarred by a number of occupations by travellers, and the removal of the rubbish that had built up was hard work.

We decided to beef up our security by fitting a strong steel post at the entrance.

We hope that the new post, securely embedded in concrete, will deter all but pedestrians, pram users and pedal cyclists.

That will take some shifting!
