Over the years the numerous visitors to the Wellington Monument have eroded the sides of the mound, making it slippery and steep to access the top, so recently Mark, George and Ben have been out working hard to make it safe again. They have added steps on both sides of the statue, taking into account drainage, surface runoff and tree roots as they’d worked.
As wll as the steps, the new map boards have arrived and are starting to go in around the sites. Rushmoor Bottom now has its map board, which should help visitors find their way around much easier.
