Larch felling is revealing valley beauty
VIEWS which have not been seen for almost half a century at Woodchester Park are being opened up by the National Trust.
Rangers and contractors are felling commercial conifer plantations – mostly larch – which have been growing for between 40 and 50 years.
The main aim is to restore pasture land in the valley.
This time last year, staff were busy helping academics in their fruitless search for evidence of a big cat.

A National Trust spokesman said that, while the area where the trees are being felled appears stark now, once the work is done there will be views opened up again.
"There will, of course, still be woodland where there is native woodland," he added.
