Creating a New Path

Sunday, April 28th 2024

This week, volunteers at Foxglove Covert were busy removing old boardwalking and creating a new path along a section of the 'green route' on the reserve.

The old boardwalk, which stretched across a very soggy patch of mud, was beginning to rot away. Rather than replacing the boardwalk, volunteers diverted the path to higher, and dryer, ground.

The process of removing the old boardwalk support posts was an incredibly muddy one!

The new path creation was a much cleaner affair - a couple of new steps were added, and a small 'corduroy road' was made along a dip in the path.

The new path is open and ready for use, so why not try it out during your next visit to Foxglove Covert? Just head along the green route to find it!
