Location : Fielden Trail Todmorden
CROWS : Dick, Dave, Fred, Bernard, Gerald, Richard J and Terry
Task : Footpath clearance, strimming and some drainage issues to be sorted.




 The path was overgrown with a prickly hedge.






Further along the footpath on the Todmorden Centenary Way we found a channel from a spring filled in with soil and grass. This had been previously cleared in the past.




 Before....................




 ....................and after









 This is the spring where the water drains out from the hillside. Dry at the moment.



Bernard backed up our cutting back with the strimmer.





 At the end of this particular part of the path we discovered another turn-by.






Which after a little bit of clearing...................................




 .......................turned into a cobbled lined gulley






 ...............which led to a blocked up hole in wall which was cleared




 .............................which came out the other side of a wall





 ...................across a road and into the stream.
