New walkways and interpretation boards at Roundball Wood will guide people through the unique nature of the wet woodland.Karen Gregory, BBC Breathing Places Project Executive, said: "I am delighted that Honiton Town Council has joined us for what promises to be an exciting year for the Breathing Places Campaign.
