My last report on the work being undertaken to create a relief access road to the new farm complex was dated 18 July 2017.
I can now report the construction of this road is in its final stages. There is only the tarmac base and top coat to be laid, with remedial landscaping to be carried out.
This new private access road will enable heavy farm traffic to be diverted away from the old winding estate road between Top Lodge and Nocton Wood House, to which the public retain access rights, thus improving safety on the estate.

I have also reported on the extensive work to improve Nocton Estate - which is taking place alongside the everyday activity of running a large farming business.
