Moors Valley Boreholes & Harvesting - Update 27 March 2014:

One of the campaign's supporters took photographs in Moors Valley/Ringwood Forest of the borehole drilling & extensive tree harvesting which took place in March 2014 (also see below).


The Forestry Commission confirmed that the borehole drilling was being undertaken on behalf of the landowner (Somerley Estate). Borehole drilling by itself isn't necessarily a bad thing. The evidence could demonstrate once and for all that the sand & gravel is below the water table or that the minerals are of insufficient quality, assuming of course that we are privy to the results.


We were also able to assure supporters that the extensive tree clearance is a part of a wider Forestry Commission programme supporting longer term restoration of heathland and encouraging indigenous species and not preparation for quarrying/landfill.
