Volunteers clear Motte at Bailey Hill, Mold

Willing volunteers certainly made light work of the recent Motte clearance sessions at Bailey Hill, Mold.

During two sunny days in October the re-growth of laurel, holly, brambles and ash saplings on the south side of the Motte were cut back by teams of volunteers from Flintshire Local Voluntary Council’s ONC course in volunteering and community involvement, helped by Jill Blandfold from FLVC and some Mold Town Councillors.

It was amazing how much re-growth there was considering the whole Motte was completely cleared last year. The laurel and brambles are certainly persistent!

The storm force winds on 15 October have caused a huge bough from one of the beech trees on the Motte to come down, along with the whole crown of an ash tree by the path to the Gorsedd from the Inner Bailey.
