SPARROW CASTLE 1996 - 2007

(Project 1 on Projects Map)

This was Sparrow Castle site on the Manston Road in 2001. Growth was very slow due to the nature of the 'hump' (old railway aggregate and chalk) and its exposure. Two Spruce trees were stolen but two Maritime Pines were donated as replacements

This is Sparrow Castle in April 2007. Shrubs and trees have got roots down into moisture and the Ash and Mountain Ash have started to shape up. As this picture shows, shaping pruning will soon be needed. 'Alexanders' have invaded the front of the site close to the road and will need to be exterminated!
