Saxongate Update

Kings Dyke Nature Reserve has now shut due to a land slip. Forterra is funding the repair work, which may take a year. The attached letter gives all the details.

Like Saxon Pit this is a former brickworks. Given that works are ongoing at Saxon Pit
(not owned by Forterra) to shore up the Eastern Buttress, that works will then be needed there to shore up the Southern Buttress and now we have a slippage at Kings Dyke,
it makes you question the quality of restoration work carried out by the original owners when the sites were handed over (before Forterra’s time).
Going forward, residents need to take a much greater interest in matters like this. 

Thankfully Forterra is acting as a good neighbour and has shared its plans to remedy the issue at Kings Dyke. Once completed the town should see the nature reserve fully restored and free for the local community to enjoy again in perpetuity.
