Having cleared the track at the end of last year on the Christmas scrub bash, we were now working on the very overgrown dewpond up on the Glynde estate, near Lewes.

In fact you wouldn't know there was a dewpond there, just a hollow in the ground surrounded by scrub and filled with small and fallen trees.

The scrub was a mixture of pretty thick windblown hawthorn and elder with a few brambles thrown in. Once you'd broken through the outer barrier of thorns it got a bit easier to tackle the base.
Good effort all round, as by the end of the day, we'd pretty much cleared the outer ring of scrub, which was left to be burnt on a later task.
