Intake Wood Cleanup 10th March

:

,

‘, .

As residents Kings Clipstone we are proud of the history of our community but very concerned that neglect is ruining our heritage and environment.

Our community led campaign aims to :-

make the wider community aware of the unique position that the village occupies within Sherwood and its important past.

Beeston Lodge - the pele tower

King John’s Palace – a far more important building than previously thought but in threatened by complete collapse.

This photo was taken in the 1950s showed the ruins of Beeston Lodge, which is thought to be the gatehouse of the original pele built above the Spar Ponds. Neglect and vandalism destroyed these last stahding walls leaving just a pile of stones on the ground.

The same fate awaits the remains of the Flood Dykes and the ruins of Kings John’s Palace if action isn’t taken now.

Cleaning up Intake Wood

Some of the residents of Kings Clipstone and Clipstone Village who turned out on Saturday 10th March 2007 to clear up Intake Wood. The wood, which is open to the public, has been taken over by Newark & Sherwood Council who plan with the help of the local community turn into a local nature reserve. This is a great facility right at the heart of our communities and much loved by local people. We had already put up bird and bat boxes sponsored by residents and decided it was time to do something about the fly tipping and litter from the building sites that has spoiled parts of the wood.

Cleaning up Intake Wood

It is great to see the way the community has turned out to support us. With well over 30 people helping we managed to do far more than we expected. We were even able to tackle the parish council land at the side of the wood. Newark and Sherwood Council provided a skip but we managed to gather enough to fill three skips. It just shows what can be done when the community comes together.

The Air Cadets were a great help.
