Gobions survives the storms
The majority of paths around Gobions have survived the storms that hit the area at the weekend.
A number of trees fell victim to the 80 miles per hour winds, including at least one redwood, but all fell away from the main paths.
In all there are six points where fallen branches blocked the way, but all have now been cleared.
Even where the paths were blocked walkers had forced a way through the foliage.
A couple of volunteers from Gobions Woodland Trust spent Monday afternoon cutting back branches which were obstructing the network of paths.

The high winds have added a strange beauty to the area.
Green leaves, which would normally still be on the trees, now carpet the ground along with golden, red and brown leaves.
The mixture of colours makes Gobions strikingly colourful in the autumn sunshine.
A coating of the leaves covers much of the water in the lake areas making it a good time to take photographs.
Anyone walking in Gobions at this time should take extra care because there are still many small sticks across the paths and some of the steps are hidden by the heavy fall of leaves.

Many local roads fell victim to the storms, particularly Kentish Lane, Woodside Lane and Station Road.
