Eversley – Walk the Path kissing gate issue

Today Steven, ranger at BVCP, with the help of Chris Bean cleared the obstruction from the Blackwater Valley path in Eversley. A fallen tree from the winter storms next to a ditch had lifted and moved the kissing gate, making the surface unsafe and difficult to walk.

Having looked at the gate last week the action of removing the gate was decided, so this week gate removed and the surface free of rubble. Many thanks to Chris for all his help.

Fingers crossed this now completes any outstanding issues along the path ready for 27th April and Walk the Path.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
