Ken from the BVC Trust has been leading a 2 day project to improve the Yateley bridleway and footpath that run south from Moor Green Lakes, since it forms an important link with the Blackwater Valley Path to the north.
The project involved complete end-to-end path clearance of vegetation from Halls Lane to the River Blackwater over 450m. We cleared the overgrown vegetation with hand tools and chainsaws to allow for the sun & wind to get in and help dry out the path. Also we removed over 100m of redundant fencing. For phase 2 we’ll use a digger to scrape of the surface mud to reveal the firm laid surface underneath.
It was highly successful as we had a great team that pulled together as one, with a total of 17 volunteers from various backgrounds representing the BCVP, BVCT, college students & Moor Green Lakes. Well done everyone.
