After the last storm a month or so ago the Blackwater Valley rangers had a call of a broken section of boardwalk at Ash Green Meadows.
I thought this would be a good test and some training for our regular students that work with us on a Friday. The Blackwater Valley rangers do many varieties of tasks, with the Rowhill Nature Reserve boardwalk replacement happening in the summer months I thought it a good idea to show the students how the boardwalk is constructed. When getting onto site it was clear to see the Wooden subframe had failed and not tree damage as I first thought. There was a small section of broken boardwalk. The students went to work and managed to take off the tread boards. They then secured the failed bearer that holds the boards in place. once all nice and secured again, the removed boards were put back into place.
I would like to thank the Students for their help on the day and making this boardwalk safe to use again. Great Job
