Situation

Lesnes Abbey Conservation Volunteers maintain traditional chestnut (post & rail) fencing which protects wildflower enclosures in Lesnes Abbey woods. Repairing the wooden fence is a contast job which needs to be done. In order to protect the wonderful display of daffodils in spring & the later display of bluebells, as well as many other native woodland flowers. The fence also helps to protect the woodland creatures & their habitats in the enclosures. The wildflower enclosures have been designated as a site of special scientific interest, due to the site's underlying geology. This valueable resource can only be kept through donations and grant funding.
