Step building

On Wednesday last, seven of us were engaged on improving access near the footbridge at Filnore Woods.  Some of us were putting steps into the slippery slope, using coppiced hazel poles and hazel stakes to secure them.  Very local produce. 

We also attempted to imptove the path near the stream, with stones washed downstream by the recent spate of water from the wet weather.

A satisfying morning for the team of Alan, Sam, Guy, Steve, Allan and Brett. 

We shall continue the steps up the slope when we see how the first five perform.  The aim is to make it easier for human pedestrians and to reduce erosion of the soil on the slope.
