Event: CONSERVATION WORK PARTY
This work party will concentrate on habitat management aimed at Black Hairstreak.
Site: Brampton Wood, Cambridgeshire
Grid Reference: TL184698 [OS Landranger Map 153]
Time & Meeting Place: 10.00am. Reserve Carpark. We should have the gates open so that volunteers can park close to the interpretation hut and leave the main car park for visitors
PLEASE NOTE: ROAD CLOSURE
The A14 Highways people have just announced that the road from Brampton to the wood, over the bridge over the A1 will be closed from Friday evening to Monday morning this weekend. There will be no access to the wood from Brampton.
If you are coming from the south up the A1 or via Brampton village, you need to go to Buckden roundabout, take the turn to Perry and Grafham Water, turn right at the signpost for Grafham, before the dam, and, on entering Grafham village, turn right down Brampton Road. This leads to the wood car park.
If you are coming south down the A1 or east or west on the A14, it is better to take the Ellington turn off the A14 (west of Brampton Hut), and head to Grafham village out of Ellington. In Grafham take Brampton Road on the left near a bend, as above.
