Last Summer Workday

It was the last summer workday in 2019, and also, probably the last time that we will go beyond Potsford Dam.

The reason for this is because Sustrans are putting in an off-road cycle path from Potsford Dam to Leamington, so our services will no longer be required past this point.

There is the elusive Right of Way called R168x which runs from the greenway, somewhere from the section between Potsford Dam and Dunchurch railway station, to Dunchurch Bridleway R168. This trail is another project that I am currently working on so keep your eyes peeled if you’re interested.

Anyhow, this week Marcus, Aaron, and myself snipped back the shrubbery so that anyone using the path has a clear run before the path naturally clears.

Next week we hope to start building the steps down to the reed-bed. Once we get access to the reed-bed we can start to encourage dragonflies and damselflies. It will be very interesting, from a wildlife point-of-view.
