Manning’s Pit a selection of beautiful countryside located just out side of Pilton. Set in 22 acers gentle sloping meadows give way to trickling Braddiford stream waters. For many generations this most loved area has been a treasure for families and dog workers alike. Now under threat for development for 43 homes ( by Wastaway parks), there has been much Opposition form locals. This week the student union reached out to students to support this local cause. Collecting a total of 103 signatures an extraordinary range of students were passionately opposed to the development in just one and a halve hours. Many telling us of childhood and present memories with loved ones that feature Manning’s Pit, it very soon became apparent of how well known and loved this place is. We now hope we will make a difference to the cause, helping to create a brighter future for this outstanding area.
