This week was just a bit of “light touch” maintenance. Actually staining one of the picnic benches.
I will give it another coat and do the underside, on my next visit.
It was a good time to enjoy the path. Over the last ten years, we have cleared a horribly overgrown and nasty rubbish tip and turned it into an interesting biodiverse nature trail.
We have permission to route around the corner of the field near the irrigation pond to get to Dunchurch Nature Trail, and all of the Right of Way paths that lead from this. Please do not trespass onto the land around the irrigation pond.
There is further to venture, or just enjoy the Cawston Nature Trail for what it is.
These are the guides that we work from. Written by experts who understand how to create a balance between totally wild, managed scrub control and a path that is usable by the general public.
Sustrans are still advising that no group workdays can take place. As soon as I hear that we are allowed back as groups I will post up regular weekly workdays again.
Plenty of good stuff in the pipeline that I am just itching to share, but I do not want to spoil the surprise. Keep your eyes peeled!!
