Lockdown has seen my partner and I exploring more local paths and green spaces. Council owned Buck Wood on the slopes of the Gleadless Valley in Sheffield is classed as ancient woodland by ecologists. However, it is close to a large housing estate and even before the pandemic had problems of antisocial behaviour and flytipping. Now it is burned out vehicles.
An email to the Head of Parks and Countryside brought forth a promise of removal. South Yorkshire Police are also involved trying to combat illegal off road activity. The burned out car in the photo appeared on BBC Look North 6 o'clock news recently in a piece about the Police Off Road Motorbike Unit.
