NUTCLOUGH AND JUMBLE HOLE CLOUGH

Ian and Ginny cut back a hedge blocking the path from the Nutclough to Hurst.


They then joined Bernard, Gerald and Nigel on the path to Staups Mill where a fallen tree needed removing and mud needed scraping from the path.


About six inches of mud was scraped to reveal a gravel path below


Then we set off to a location above Staups Mill where a path going up to the left has disappeared under vegetation.



After a lot of hard work a good set of steps was revealed!

New step to stile

MIXENDEN

Dick, Graham, Dave and Bernard constructed a complicated stile  at Hunter Hill Mixenden, mostly in the pouring rain.

               We were visited on site by the Landowner/Tenant and given his seal of approval.
Existing stile and gate in bad repair.

Digging out post holes. Took a long time as previous stile had been
 concreted into the ground.

Timber being delivered to the site by Cal-Vag.
This saved a long carry. Thank You Jack.

Dick and Bernard getting down and dirty.

The rain got stronger.

The finished stile with Dog-Gate.
