The pathway along the great bank at Fromus Reserve: More than 800 years after Baron Roger Bigod made a monumental earthen dam to retain the waters of his great Pond at Kelsale deer park, it is surprising how open we still find the path along the top of the dam — but not always so. The Spring gales of 2022 brought down a big limb of a veteran tree, right across this ancient pathway. Many thanks to Keith Dickerson and Jem Adams who cleared it up in late May, re-opening the path, and leaving the fallen timber to be demolished over time by natural processes — better for biodiversity in the long run.
