MAPPING OUR BOUNDARY : A RING OF TREES
Greater Pinhoe is bounded by landmark trees — from the oaks at the top of Cheynegate Lane, across Ash Copse and skirting Moonhill, to the line of trees tracking Langaton Lane. Connecting the trees in the grounds of Redhayes and the Science Park to the remnants of hedgerows which once lined the route into Exeter and now introduce the Met Office, through the glorious trees of Hollow Lane and St Luke’s School, up through Eastern Fields and into the Northern Hills.
Greater Pinhoe’s roots lie within Hill Barton’s meadows, reaching across Summerway, historic Monkerton and into Westclyst. We’ve begun a new project with East Devon to reclaim footpaths across our electoral boundary, connecting their wonderful vision for the Clyst Valley Park to our ambitious proposal for a Ridgeline Park across the Northern Hills.
We are always developing plans to protect and repair the trees and hedgerows across Pinhoe. If you’re interested in being involved, we’d love to hear from you. We’re grateful for the advice of Treeconomics, Exeter City Council’s Tree Officer Joe Morshead, Devon Wildlife Trust and the dedicated local volunteers of Wild Pinhoe.
