Wild flower delight

The installation of a bund along St. German’s Place, Blackheath, last winter was principally designed to prevent parking on the Heath, but has been drawing admiring glances from passers-by and residents.

It was scattered with wild flower seeds just after being constructed and the arrival of spring and early summer has brought a magnificent display of wild flowers.

Blackheath Westcombe Councillor Geoff Brighty said: "It has helped to discourage parking on the surface of the Heath at the road edge, as we hoped it would, and has also added enormously to this already attractive part of the Heath."
