The Felling of The Silver Birches.
Two silver birches, which have stood in front of the Stable Arch for over 40 years, were felled last week. Sadly they were too close to some power lines and also they were beginning to cause damage to the stable yard walls and the road. It was decided to remove them and they will be replaced with some smaller trees which will suit the location better. In the meantime it does look rather bare there, although we are able to see the time on the clock on the stable arch a lot more clearly now.
