A610 Tuesday 17th November 2015.
The steps on the A610 which we made on the 20th of October (see articel in 'footpath maintenance' above) were inspected and completed in today's session. Working conditions on this steep bank were not easy many pieces of tree root and pieces of stone in the ground where pegs had to be knocked in and woodwork placed added to the effort required from the team. All the time weather was at the forefront of our thoughts but despite light rain and muddy conditions underfoot satisfactory progress was made.
Steve Cresswell had advised beforehand that he may not have been able to get his landrover onto site due to the conditions. However he did make it and once again through his guidance and support we were able to work. Pentrich Council had funded materials for the work on these paths.
The excellent turnout of volunteers enabled two teams to work and the second path on this section of the A610 can be seen as a small muddy path up the steep bank. After clearing blackthorn and other growth step positions were cut and the bank hewed to take the boards to form the steps. A good start was made and the first section can be seen nearing completion. It is anticipated a number of sessions will be needed to complete the job." Peter W.
