The Great Scrape:- Day 4
Ginny, Ruth, Peter, Ken, Gerald, Ian and Rich. Now working along the route of the old railway.
Not so many obvious pictures from this section.

One of many stretches of leveled and widened path

Stepping stones and channels to deal with poor drainage

One of many pools of water on the route

After a grip has been put in (and many have been put in)

We found a lot of large unexplained holes and this one was filled in very artistically.  Worthy of a Turner prize I think!

Tools all clean and ready to go back to the depot
 A great week's work. We need to go back and revisit some of the drainage work to see how the channels are doing and there's a few steps etc to put in.
Then it's on to the riverside path downstream from Widdop Gate.
