Logging on to the Lagoon site
18 logs resulting from our recently completed coppicing were carried one by one down the hill from Banstead Wood to Holly Lane car park and then on to the Lagoon. There they were secured by wire and ground anchors to reduce the chance of being re-purposed by the more inventive public into jetties, rafts, bridges etc.
