Thanks to Spike for the first picture that shows clearance of the Abingdon Hyrdo site is already well underway. The Hydro will generate Hydro-electricity from the Thames alongside Abingdon Weir
Since Wednesday Volunteers from Abingdon Hydro have been clearing the site. Three trees have been felled and a lot of undergrowth cleared.
The large hollow dead tree nearest the weir had no evidence of bats, and came down fairly easily, but volunteers are putting up bat boxes on alternative trees, to provide a bat habitat, just in case.
Transporting the firewood from the site is not easy as the nearest place for vehicles is the Abingdon Health and Well being Centre on Audlett Drive – over the foot bridge and 50 metres along a footpath.
