More step building

 
 
Last year we installed 11 steps to make climbing this slope, from the footbridge up to post six near the viewpoint, easier. But the steepest bit was still without steps and became treacherous when you tried to walk down it in winter.

So the Friends of Filnore Woods set to, using materials from our recent coppicing, to make another 12 steps. 
Eight-foot-long poles were laid across the path . . .

 
 . . . . and secured with pegs.
 
 
Woodchip was used to level the treads and give a comfortable climbing surface.
 
 
So come and climb them.
