The students and staff have been busy at Hawley Meadows installing gates this week. The north end on the Blackwater Valley Path now has a normal swing gate, to make access easier for visitors. The students helped cut back the path then had fun creating a woven holly and hazel hurdle to hold back the ditch bank.
The north west corner of Hawley now hosts a kissing gate by the railway, which joins into a new circular route cut through the adjoining woods of Blackwater Park. From the gate the path runs north along the railway, then turns right through the woods to come out by the pond on the BV Path. The path has been cleared and cut with out ride-on-brushcutter so it’s easy to follow for any explorers. Thanks to everyone for all their hard work.
