Thyme Planting

On Saturday 25th October, we helped Butterfly Conservation by planting wild thyme plants on the hillfort. Wild thyme is the foodplant of the Large Blue butterfly and planting it on the Beacon is part of a project to improve habitats in the Painswick Valley for this rare butterfly and hopefully it will re-colonise old sites.
