What a fantastic day..

Great day with a great turnout of about 20 or so people. We pushed on past The Bear pub and cleared all the rubbish under the Victorian bridge. It was really bad so a good job done.

Bags and bags of litter and also lots of random items dumped over the years.

We also dug out the original steps, which made life a lot easier getting back up to the top.

And finally this is the path as it runs past The Bear northwards to link up with Sustrans cycle route 41 on the Western Relief Road. The  canopy above the path has got to be cleared to let sunlight in to encourage plant life, and then wildlife. At the moment it is a very dark, very wet place. 

Thanks to everyone who turned out, we seemed to get loads done and slowly we are making good progress. As a priority I think we need to clear the canopy and open up the natural clearings to encourage grass and berry producing shrubs to grow. The scrub clearance should ideally start in October and run through to February in the following year.
