Please be aware that Barlavington Estates are currently carrying out their periodic survey for dangerous trees along all public roads and Rights of Way across the Barlavington Estate, which includes large parts of Coldwaltham Parish. They have advised that given the severity of Ash die-back in this area – it is likely that quite a few roadside and path-side trees may need to be felled over the next few months. Please bare this in mind when you are out walking or riding in the parish.
