Chawton Park Farm - Tree Safety

The farmers at Chawton Park Farm are having major problems with tree sickness.

In particular on Bridleway 2, 300 metres west of the farm at SU 695 375 an oak has shed some major branches and needs to be felled.

A warning notice is posted either side of the tree giving information and alerting walkers and riders to the potential danger. The farm is in urgent discussion with tree surgeons and Forestry Commission

You may wish to reroute a walk from this valley to Bridleway 4 starting from Northfield Lane towards Medstead

I will update you when I know the tree has been felled.
