Now we can see the woods for the trees...

Here are some aerial photographs of the woods, kindly taken for us on 24th January by Mike Page (shown by his plane). In winter, the distinction between coniferous and deciduous trees is clear.

These pictures show the woods that the landowners told everyone were coniferous plantations planted after the war. We think the pictures tell their own story.

Friends of Thorpe Woodlands would like to express our great appreciation to Mike for his help in taking these photos. There can now be no doubt that the Thorpe & Felthorpe Trust were mistaken (to put it at its kindest) in their claims. The total coniferous area can be no more than 15% at most.

We know you watch our blog, T&FT Trustees - will you now issue a statement apologising for misleading the public and acknowledging that the woods are nothing like the description you foisted upon us?
