Hardcastle Crags Job 3 the refurbishment of parts of the riverside path


During last years floods this tree trunk blocked part of the river and diverted the current into the bank


This washed away the supporting stones and gravel causing the edge of the footpath to collapse into the river



















Either the banking to the right of the path has to be cut back to widen the path





Or the banking itself has to be strengthened......or both









Or the previous path of steps up to the right has to be replaced and widened
