We spent this work morning clearing the stream through the middle of the wood, trimming back branches from footpaths etc. The stream only runs during periods of heavy rain, but then the water from the top ditches has to drain somewhere. It flows down through the wood and then dives underground, crossing the common towards the kissing gate (you can see a depression in the ground where the stream runs underground).
