SUMMER is upon us. Once again, The National Trust is grazing vast areas around Wicken Fen, with cattle that are often aggressive towards users of the area, especially those with dogs.
In spite of claims that the project will improve access, the large animals that are allowed to wander on the paths reduce access, as many people are too intimidated by their presence to go there.
Some supporters of the Wicken Fen Vision think that The National Trust buying up local land will prevent crop-sprayers working right up to their boundaries. However, the cattle are not even managing to control the weeds, as was their intended purpose. The National Trust has now started spraying to control weeds on grazed areas.
Nor does the argument that the project will save land from development hold any weight, as none of the land is under threat of development. Most of the land bought by The National Trust is below sea level and completely unsuitable for building on.
