Annual Reviews

Each year we now produce an 'Annual Review' for Friends and Members, which incorporates a summary of our formal Year-end Report, plus what we hope are some interesting highlights of the year in question.

Members and Friends are sent these annual reviews as soon as they are produced each summer, and have an opportunity to attend our AGM each October and raise any issues.

News from the Down prev  :  next

Temporary Footpath Closure Notice

Our contractors Gardenworks will be undertaking some coppicing along a length of hedge around part of the perimeter walk which necessitates closing this off to the public while the work is being carried out. See the map below showing which part will be closed.

The path closure will be in effect from the afternoon of Weds 16th January, until the work is completed - which we expect to take until the end of Friday 18th at least.


Visitors will still be able to access the Roman Road Gate from the A1307 path, but please be aware the contractor’s vehicles may be using this section.

Note also that it will still be possible to loop back up from Arable Walk to Colin's Walk via the Villedomer Wood grassland margin, but do remember that these woodland margins are on-lead areas, as signed, and you must comply by putting your dog on a lead through there.

For more information about coppicing see this article.

Old Newsletters

Up until 2011 we produced a twice-yearly Newsletter, and you can still download copies of some of these here:

In 2011 the re-designed website was launched, and so the decision was taken to stop producing these Newsletters, and instead to use this website as the main means of communication for news and articles of interest.

This move away from a regular Newsletter meant that more of the Members' and Friends' subscriptions could be spent directly on the costs of upkeep and husbandry on the Down.

We would love every regular visitor to Magog Down to help support its upkeep by becoming a Friend. Read more on our Join Us page, and then complete the application form.
