Wheelbarrow Castle Field
As some of you may have already seen, work has well and truly commenced on the early stages of the park. The drainage channels are in, with the exit of the drainage pipe designed to flow into the pond. The pond itself has been excavate and the natural clay liner due to be delivered and fitted early next week. The oak wood trunks and branches, kindly donated by the Cowdray Estate, will be delivered over the next 2 weeks with the first deliveries starting on Mon 25 June. Wildwood personnel recently visited Cowdray and inspected the timber which has been allocated to the project and came away very impressed indeed. These timber deliveries will be timed to cause minimum disruption to the primary school car park users. If this fine weather continues, the progress of the Park will be swift.
The pond dug, awaiting the natural environmentally-friendly clay liner, with drainage exit pipe from the groundworks clearly visible. The pond measures approx 11mtrs x 6 mtrs and is kidney shaped. It will have at least 2 log seats on its periphery.
