Daisy Bank Clough:
i) Preparatory work for steps.
At the start of the day the temperature was hovering around freezing but Mick and Frank H, engaged in energetic work in a sheltered location, soon warmed up and had to shed a layer or two!
Here's the situation:
Meanwhile at the northern end of the footbridge, Mick was similarly preparing the ground for a few steps that will lead up to a small stile.
Unfortunately no pictures are available of his strenuous efforts (sorry, Mick) but this is the peaceful view that he was able to admire for most of the day.
Step-builders from CROWS will finish these jobs in the next few weeks.
ii) Basic boardwalk
Towards the end of the session, we re-stablised a short 'boardwalk' across a boggy patch.
The basic timber for the boardwalk was already there so after levelling-up the bearers and planks, we drove home four stobs and secured all-round:- stobs nailed to planks and planks nailed to bearers.
It is now a safe, stable 'crossing' in what is a very marshy area!
