Over 50 miles of footpaths have been covered over the last few weeks as we have been busy finishing our open structures survey for the property. This involved checking the conditions of all our footpaths and structures to make sure everything is looking its best and is in good working order.
On the not so sunny days last week we began making some waymarkers which will replace the rotting ones along the coast path. These were made out of oak which lasts longer than softwood and doesn’t need to be chemically treated. We use a router to engrave the wood and have to be careful not to make any mistakes otherwise we end up with very expensive firewood!
Here is Sarah, one of the volunteer rangers standing proudly next to the waymaker she made. Look out for it on the Dizzard between Crackington Haven and Millook.
