Today I’ve been paddling in Hawley Meadows to remove one of our fences across the river, which in the Summer season is used to stop the cattle waddling off up river. It turned out the wire had been snapped in the floods, so cue lots of paddling in chestwaders to unearth the submerged wire and plastic pipes which formed the fence, with a bonus rather damp floodlight.
As our previous grazier left us recently, we have decided to resume grazing in 2016 which will give us a chance to undertake some of the larger construction projects on site next year without worrying the moofers. We are planning for this to include; a new bridge over a ditch to create a circular path south of the car park, footpath improvements and extending both ramps of the concrete bridge so it’s easier to access. We’ll keep you posted on the improvement works.
