Park nocturne

In relentless rain I spent a few hours in Petworth Park, Sussex one day. It was a terrible day for sketching and the skies were so dark it made me wonder what the parklands would look like at night. Here's the result

Lockdown lane walks: Poor oak……SOLD

After standing ungrazed for over ten years the field on the left was recently rented out. The new farmer obviously loves kit and having a tidy up. The youngish (perhaps 80 years old) tangled oak in the foreground had a main limb hacked off as the new tenant wanted to be able to drive his digger beneath it. All the hedges and trees that had become lovely straggly wildlife havens could have been left or layed but were instead chainsawed back to a 'neat' box shape.

To allow stock to graze there, the whole area was cleared leaving a series of pyramids of hedge cuttings and tree branches that were eventually lit making massive bonfires that took days to burn down. The field and its funeral pyres of smouldering brush looked like the Dorset equivalent of rainforest clearance. After all this carnage and grubbing up of who-knows-what was establishing itself, the tenant has left this patch and moved to a field a little way down the valley. I know farming is tough and I'm sure he's doing his best while probably getting a small living from livestock, but this just isn’t right. I bet he'll be warming up his digger and chainsaw for another tidy up.

Ironically the hedgerows and trees he takes down all form part of the bucolic backdrop of the view from Gold Hill in nearby Shaftesbury, one of the most famous scenes in the country. Leaving aside all the environmental damage he's done, it amazes me that one man is allowed to change thousands of people's aspect with his out-of-date farming ideas.
