Here's a strange request, has anyone got, or know anyone who has, Harry Secombe's autobiographys?
I hear in one of his book he tells a story about train journeys for children and picnics in the fields here at Ks0001.
 
I dont suppose a mention in such an autobiography is likely to be of historic importance of the level to count towards Planning policy.....but it may add a little weight, or an extra facet, to the 'rich cultural and historical context' argument.

I've read it, some years ago - but had forgotten the mention of Clyne - I borrowed it from Killay library.

Hello Carrie,
 
Just a couple of maybe useful ideas listed below.
 
1. Another facet of Clyne Valley - as a 'unique educational resource in the heart of the City of Swansea', within easy reach of several school catchment areas. 
 
2. Last year I corresponded with staff at University of Glamorgan about doing a community wildlife/habitat audit. And I was sent a copy of their excellent handbook on how to do a community audit. I'm no expert, but it looks to me that the valley consists of examples of most of the different types of habitat - woodland, grassland, fresh water, wetland, plus habitats provided by derelict industrial remains (eg. for bats), and rocky terrain of the quarry areas.
 
3. Clyne Valley has such an unusually wide variety of habitats and associated wildlife, all interlinked as a unique ecosystem. There's nowhere else like it in Swansea. To destroy any part of the Valley ecosystem would have a disastrous and unacceptable knock-on effect on the whole of the rest of Clyne Valley. 
 
4. I've updated the CVCP Clyne Valley Wildlife Diary webpage, with a couple of new sections on Wildlife and Habitats, to emphasise this unique educational value of the Valley, which must be protected. 
 
5. Would it be useful to put the Clyne Valley Wildlife Diary website link on the Save Clyne Campaign website? If so the address is www.greenlog.btck.co.uk. Please feel free to add it to the website. Plus all contributions to the Wildlife Diary gratefully received !
 
Cheers from Nesta and John

Of course! i've always been impressed by the wide range of habitats in such a small area.....but never thought to say it here.
I'll add another comment or 2 on the website
The wildlife diary pages look v good....will definately link.
...we can also subdivide habitats, eg grasslands will include grazed fields and ungrazed old tip site which has varied vegetation ....quite unique as its a 'created' site with whatever 'topsoil' was available to cover it....each with interesting seed cache
Likewise the woodland includes 'new' eg sycamores; and old/ancient woodland....and areas of beechwood with little scrub and understory and other mixed woodland with less open space underneath the canopy.
Also of interest is the 'horrendous' wastes left after the rhododendron rooting-out, it will be interesting to study the changing vegetation patterns on those areas over the years.
 
If you want any of my pics from the website at all, feel free to ask. You can take them from the website or i can provide them in larger formats....just check with me first that they ARE my pics, i cant authorise other's copyrights!
