Nothing likes to test our fence more than the goats at Noremead, where we have been repairing fences and adding new stock fencing prior to and during spring turnout.
We erected some 250m new stock fencing on the edge of the Marlborough Downs and undertook lots of repairs to stock fences to try and keep the goats in!
See our fencing page for details of the different types of fencing we undertake

Newt fencing this week as part of the expansion to Tidworth Garrison for Aspire – several 100m worth of it! It’s been erected to allow more building and expansion of the garrisons as troops return to Salisbury Plain.
It’s a simple plastic barrier trenched into the ground by 6in to stop reptiles burying underneath and approx. 3ft high with a rolled top to prevent anything climbing up and over. It is erected where protected wildlife are likely to enter a construction site and be harmed, usually European Protected species.
