Wind Issues

Recent high winds have caused us a few problems. Having access all across our site and lots of old trees, when we get high winds, it's never a good mix.

There have been two fatality's caused by the wind in the country, with one tree in the South falling onto a van, killing the chap inside. The other was on a ship hit by a large wave.

We didn't experience the very high winds others had, one recorded over the Pennines was 111mph! Ours hit 60mph in a gust.

It did however cause a little bit of damage to trees. We still have one path closed due to a hanging branch, awaiting a tree surgeon. The other trees we were able to deal with ourselves.

The weather has now settled and turning cold again, but at least it's dry....for the time being.
