Improving our paths

We and Shropshire and Staffordshire National Trust volunteers spent this Sunday resurfacing some of our paths near Presthope car park. This involved shovelling crushed rock into barrows and then pushing them up and down the paths to spread the rock where it’s needed.  

Spreading the stone across the path
 This job is tough in hot summer weather conditions but it can’t be done when the paths are muddy. However we did have two motorised barrows (they drive like a tank) for the longer distance work which helped a lot and these supplemented the hand barrows. We moved about 15 tons of rock and covered about 150m of path.Thank you again for all your hard work SSNTV! 

Having a well deserved rest
