TODMORDEN, WAINSTALLS, HEBDEN BRIDGE & MYTHOLMROYD

Four teams today

Mick C and Richard J surveyed and waymarked paths from Todmorden Golf Club to Shore Road.


Gerald and Rich scraped a path in Hebden Bridge and cut up lots of pegs for steps.

Frank S and Bernard (later joined by the other four) scraped a path from the back of Mytholmroyd to Cragg Road. A well used woodland path that had become very wet under foot.

The whole path was like this

And like this
  Frank S and Peter also removed a tree across the lower path (just above a steep drop into the river). We were all hoping they had done a risk assessment!

Tree down across the path

Cut and removed

Part of the path all scraped and grips put in to take off the water

Meanwhile Ken and Nigel put in a marker post at Lower Shaw Booth, Wainstalls.


Hole prepared for post



Private yard where walkers have ended up in the absence of suitable waymarking

New post with bridleway signs


Post with signs (straight on or right) should solve any future problems for walkers (and residents)

A few extra shots of the path down to Royd Ices scraped and tree removed.


Amazing what you find under mulch


Tree crossing the path dealt with
