Works Diary for January



January was a month of general maintenance and repairs. 


The high winds and wet conditions did limit some of the work but we did manage to put in 158 hours and complete most of the planned tasks.

 

We collect 3 bags of litter on the first Saturday of the year most of it was wind-blown but there were some cans and bottles found in the lower dene.


This was a full mornings work for all as we usually only collect this amount in a month.

 


In the Upper Reach the area behind the Long Stone Seat has been cleared, dug over and sown with Yarrow.


The soak away on the north bank has also been cleared and some bramble runners dug out on the north bank.


Gorse has been pruned back along the north bank, and wind damaged branches mainly from the willow have been cut and cleared.


This area has also been regularly litter picked.


 

In the Middle Reach gorse has been pruned back along the north bank, and wind damaged branches mainly from the willow have been cut and cleared.


This area has also been regularly litter picked.


 

In the Lower Reach gorse has been pruned back along the north bank, and wind damaged branches mainly from the willow have been cut and cleared.


Capita have repaired the lower bridge and replaced some of the safety fence around the culvert. We have refitted the antiskid strips to this bridge.


The steps have been cleared improving the access to the lower dene.

This area has also been regularly litter picked.


 

On the Dene Top we have replaced the fallen slab on the observation platform.

This area has also been regularly litter picked.

 

5.5 bags of Litter were collected this month.
