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
