STORM REPORT – 2021/22
While still recovering from the significant damage caused by Storm ARWEN at the end of November 2021, it is sad to report that The Burn has suffered further damage from the very recent gale force winds of Storms MALIK and CORRIE. Over 500 trees down and whole conifer plantations have been wiped out. Power lines are down and the wide spread devastation is so heartbreaking.
Both drives are currently blocked and we have lost some fabulous trees – from the majestic oak and horse chestnut near Marjorie’s cottage to the monkey puzzle by the walled garden.
The recovery process is likely to be extremely challenging and will take many months to complete. We will keep you informed as we bring The Burn back to its best.
Recovery has already started. With replanting in mind, if you can, we would be very grateful if you could make a donation.

There are two ways you can help The Burn

1) Make a donation today
