It looks like a motorway at the moment but it will blend in soon enough.
South Gloucestershire Council gave us a grant to re-inforce this small section of track, which has been a quagmire in recent winters. We have had it professionally done by contractor Chris Belcher, with stone over a membrane, topped off with stone dust. The camber slopes so that any surplus surface water will drain off the track.
Hopefully this bit of track re-inforcement will allow us to drive in when necessary, even in winter. It should also make it pleasanter for walkers once nature has softened the appearance.
It will be interesting to see how soon the bare earth is colonised again by plants.
