Our work in the Heddon Valley
The ranger team for the Heddon Valley are based near Combe Martin. If you need to contact them for any reason please call 01598 736556. The team consists of a mix of full time staff and volunteers. They are involved in a variety of practical and visitor focused tasks. If you are out walking in the area and see them then do please stop for a chat and discover more about the vital work that they undertake. If you would like to volunteer with this team at either Watersmeet or Heddon valley then do please get in touch with us.
Our main woodland work at the moment is at Woody Bay, near Martinhoe. All the trees were planted here at the same time owing to storm damage so we're thinning the area to vary the ages and to restore coastal heathland. We also have a plan to completely eradicate the invasive rhododendrons to allow other species to thrive.
