2013 JULY - Repairing Scout Lane

In June 2013 the lane project got under way.

Tom Harrison  wanted to repair the eroded lane between the Bird Sanctuary and the Scout area.
He contacted Peter Hammond and I, to discuss it.

Tom had access to waste gunnite 'droppings' - the ideal material.

The first task was to level the lane.
Many wheelbarrows of soil were brought up from a dumped heap 300 meters away  --very  heavy work!!

The cycle clubs advised us how to put barrier poles in to slow the cyclists down. Peter and Shepherd dug the holes and placed them.

Daily the new path progressed 

Well done Tom and Peter  --  the finished lane
