Stone spreading in Carding Mill Valley
This week we took a delivery of 35 tonnes of stone to use to help improve parking for cars along valley. The Wednesday Action Group (WAGs) helped to shovel and spread this stone along the valley, whilst spreading grass seed underneath; we have seen in other areas the grass is beginning to grow through the stone and should eventually provide a more natural looking effect. This action has arrived after visitors cars have been getting stuck in the mud whilst parking. It took a morning of several volunteers and rangers to shift the stone along the valley.
