This week the Blackwater Valley Rangers went to Rowhill Nature Reserve to install the long awaited Boardwalk. The Boardwalk is made of recycled plastic which in the very wet condition will last for many years, opposed to the wooden version which in time would rot and need replacing.
The section pictured is 27 meters long and will have ramps leading up to it at either end. The 27 meters was completed by the Blackwater Valley Ranger team in just 4 days. There is going to be a second section installed which will be 9 meters long. The Rowhill Nature Reserve Volunteers have kindly offered to install this section within the next few weeks.
I would like to thank all of the Blackwater Valley Rangers who have come along this week to help and support on this great project. I managed to have a catch up with Christian from the Rowhill Volunteers on Thursday and he gave a hand to move the remaining tread boards to the work location. I think this boardwalk is a great addition to the site and many visitors will enjoy having not so wet and muddy feet in the winter months.
