With the arrival of autumn it was time to cut and clear the vegetation that had grown over the course of the summer in what is known as the "Butterfly Meadow" if the habitat which supports the butterflies and other insects to be found there, was to be maintained.
Willow growing at the edge was cut back to reduce shading.
Possibly not the most impressive of bonfires but it served its purpose.
Despite the setting, the task was not one of total peace and tranquillity.
