    Wall tree copice

    Post  mudslinger110 on Fri Apr 26, 2013 3:06 pm

    Greetings on map ref SD893 37B along side back lane travelling from colne to trawden and coldwell there is a wall section of field containing a small copice of trees .Seemingly there is no reason for this as the rest of the fields in the area are clear of trees.Just wondered if there is a reason behind this.

    I don't know it off hand but quite often a copice is for Phesants, did you mean SD 893 378 ? rather than 37B

    Cheers Danny

    Greetings Danny,
    Yes there are two small copice both walled of from the field in grid ref you give having to get use to the grid ref again.It just that the land wouldbe usuitable for pheasant as all round is to open country for them. I have a feeling they could represent something else.

    Yes, I know the coppice running along the side of the lane up to Clarion House. Its a little bit west of those grid references at (SD8907 3788) beside the lane. I always wondered what that long strip of tree-covered land was for.
