If you're leaving until spring just ensure that there are no birds nesting in it.

I saw a similar regeneration technique carried out on two large yews in the churchyard opposite my mother in law's home.  A few years on and the yews are wonderful, about 10ft tall and you'd never suspect that they'd been cut back so hard.

Having spoken to Wonky I know that she was taken care of by a qualified First Aider who was a guest in the house, so I'm not stressing tooooooooooo much

BL   Diss is great - I used to do my last minute pre-Christmas shop there on the 23rd Dec most years - it always does it's best to be festive.  Also a very good auction house there - Gaze's - antiques, fine art, architectural salvage and all sorts.  Very good bacon and sausage sandwiches and a fine day's entertainment.

Right, hotels for overnight stops to and from Cornwall all booked up.  Cheap and cheerful Travelodge on the way down - something a bit more comfortable (a Gt Western)  on the way back so we don't undo all the good the holiday is going to do
