All our animals and people are safe but we are sorry to report that we have suffered significant damage and disruption across our 43 acre site. At times, we are unable to venture too far into the Lakes area as it is too dangerous. It is very challenging here at Raystede with all the flying debris and falling boughs and trees.
A considerable number of trees have fallen since the storm began on Friday 18 February. Heavy rain on Saturday 19 February saturated the earth and with every strong gust of wind, we could see some of the conifers actually moving in the ground - they will need to come down as soon as we can safely enter the area.
