The extent of the woodland affected …..from ‘East Ayton’ along ‘Forge Valley’ – ‘Ruston Cliff Footpath’ – beside Low Road to ‘Throxenby Mere’ – along the ridge in front of the wireless station and behind cemetery – ‘Rowbrow Wood’ – Scarborough’s Woodland fringe and her Green Lung!
The stately iconic ‘Lady Grace Ride’ – Once a tree lined track deep into the very heart of a lovely mixed woodland, now changing forever. Thanks to the misguided, incompetent so called management of the CALAMITY ENTERPRISE!
Lovely – Raincliffe Woods from adjacent farmland
Lovely leafy canopy of Raincliffe Woods with both pine and broad leaf trees splendid all year round! …….
And now upon the high ridge overlooking forge valley..
Devastation top of Forge Valley! Pine trees – some native – felled on steep slope – Ruston Cliff – risking further erosion beside narrow path ajoining farmland! THE DEVASTATION HAS STARTED!!!
The mixed Autumnal splendour of Raincliffe Woods – Alas the woods are in trouble by needless and excessive intervention!
