‘Bomb Hole’ re-opened

23 June, 2013 at 22:00

A small team of five, including Katie with 1.5 functional legs (minor use of stick for support!), went out to the ‘Bomb Hole’ section to assess the situation following harvester working in the area. Yet again, a fine job by the FC’s Tree Team and their contractors – there was no trail damage resulting from the harvesting.

After draining a few puddles, and sweeping the trail off in two areas, the section was re-opened, and normal service resumed!

The Bomb Hole itself will be getting a drainage pipe in the near future, as the water in the now somewhat shallow sump can only flow away across the trail. Some surfacing work will also be required to raise the level of the trail at the start and end of the section, as the trail has now worn below the normal ground level – a job for the mid-week maintenace sessions ….
