Storm Hector in the Park

Storm Hector has made its presence felt in the Park.Fallen Beech on meadow

Besides the widespread foliage and branches littering the park after the storm a number of paths were affected by fallen trees.

The paths from the North drive to the car park were blocked by fallen branches. A large section of an oak tree blocked the horse trail by the burn, and a giant beech fell across the path from the Meadow to the South Drive.

 

Land Services have reacted quickly and have removed most of the hazards, but the big beech is proving more of a challenge. The trunk has been cut from the root which has fallen almost exactly back into place. Fallen Beech4

Meantime this path has been taped off for safety, so you need to find an alternative route.
