Posts, Pathways and Prizes!

Tuesday, October 6th 2020

The final few waymarker posts on the Explorer Trail were installed today. A few additional ones have been put in place to help guide visitors around the perimeter pathway also known as the green route.

In parts of the woodland, it was tricky to dig around the tree roots.

Down on Risedale Beck, dams that had been damaged in the storm on Saturday were repaired; a definite 'wader job'!

Up in the woodland, a start was made on re edging the pathway using timber from excess trees. Each peg was cut off at exactly 45%!

Paths were also cleared of autumn leaves.

Gerry made a quiz for lunchtime and the winners were Jo and Roger, now the proud owners of a trophy (until next week)!

Another fun and productive day at Foxglove!
