Adderstable Woods

This Project commenced, and as a first step, ensured CMPC registered ownership of Adderstable Woods. An extensive and well researched programme of work was laid out, which sadly, is currently on hold, following the death of Peter Wilkinson. CMCCT hope to find individuals to recommence the project.
