The area below had been a valuable area for nesting 'Sand Martins' for centuries, until its blatant and careless destruction.

These three photos, clearly prove the devastating effects that deforestation and the removal of plant life that has helped to sustain the stability of St Catherine's Hill, and many others places alike can have.

What happened in Boscastle (with Flash Flooding) may well happen here, if this area is allowed to become nothing more than a ' Heather and Moss Covered Bog'.

Deforestation needs to be stopped. Adder's are now thriving here. See: Adder-bite Max 90 minutes from death.

In the picture above a little dog pauses, as she looks across a rubbish strewn and eroded pathway. The pathways along the Eastern Side of St Catherine's Hill, are very badly eroded and extremely dangerous to walk upon. There appears to be, very little maintenance and practically no consideration as to Public Health and Safety in this area.
