Windbreak near Charing
Windbreak near Charing
This long row of tall conifers is prominent on aerial mapping, which shows it to be about 250m long. It appears to have been planted as a windbreak, possibly to shelter the A20 from snowdrifts in northerly winds: it is several hundred metres from the properties along Pett Lane to the north, and therefore of no use in sheltering them.
