Recently repaired section of path
The work involved linking the path that we'd previously repaired to the original path-line. In the photograph below you can see the original, eroded path to the left of the photo and a bare area of grass to the right where our new path will go.
Where the new path joins the old path
In just a few hours, most of the path had been dug off and we managed to find plenty of the red sub-soil which makes an excellent topping for the path.
Digging out the path
We blocked off the old path (which you can see leading to the right in the following photograph) with some large boulders and used some excess soil to cover the eroded areas. At some point in the next week we'll put some grass seed down on this fresh soil to help green up the area.
Looking down the new path
By the end of the day we'd completed the path and a turf-lined side drain which will now provide a more sustainable surface on the route to the summit.
