This post and photograph should have gone up yesterday but better late than never! The photograph is of the stile that used to lead into Manning’s Pit from the Windsor Road direction, as it was on Christmas Day in 2010.
This year Manning’s Pit is damp and muddy, but thanks to everyone it is far safer than it was back in the autumn of 2015 when For Sale notices were posted on the nearby gate. That doesn’t mean that we have saved Manning’s Pit yet, and it won’t be safe until it is owned by the local community or an organisation that can be trusted to protect it permanently.
We have some exciting plans for the years to come, and will tell you all more as we go into the New Year, but for now, best wishes to everyone and thank you again, everyone.
