26th September Bray Pit
Raking the meadow.

Bray Pit used to be managed by BBOWT. BBOWT volunteers are going to cut it for us this year and WMCV will rake off the mowings. This is to reduce the nutrients in the soil and encourage the masses of wild flowers which grow in the summer.

Bray Pit is sandwiched between Bray Sailing Lake and the M4.

The postcode for Bray Lake Watersports is SL6 2EB, but beware of using this with a satnav as some direct you through Bray Village and this route is not accessible for cars.
