Laffans Rustic Steps.

Today Bobbie and I were joined by 4 volunteers who braved the snow and ice to come and install some steps at Laffan’s bench viewpoint in the Wellesley Woodland



It was a nice task to do on a cold wintery morning, digging was surprisingly easy as the ground was a mixture of soil and sand. I think they are much sturdier than the mud steps that were there before. Many thanks all for your help. Happy new year

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’.
