About the Web Site

Unfortunately, the end of my evolvement with Cowden Pound Pastures also signaled the death-knoll for the old "cowden-pound-pastures.org.uk" web site (well - it was a bit of a mouthfull!)

However, all is not lost - you can find all the important stuff from the old site within these pages by following "Cowden Pound Pastures" in the menu; but before you go further into the data and reports...

I would like to reiterate that: The views expressed regarding Cowden Pound Pastures are those of T. R. Mullender and may not necessarily reflect those of Kent Wildlife Trust.
