Bracken Clearing 27th July

More bracken clearing was done on the evening of Tuesday 27 July 2011. David Sturge, Richard Freeman, Matt Lewis and Paul Marfell worked for a couple of hours on a path from Glen Road up to the road to Crooke Farm caravan site.

The bracken is quite tall and once cut it falls and gets in the way of the next pass of the strimmer. We are still trying to work out the best way to do the work. One strimming followed by 2 clearing followed by one strimming the bits left seems to be a good way of working.

Group Walk on Baildon Moor 12 Dec 2009

Sconce Path

A informal FoBM walk took place over the moor to inspect the sites of potential projects. The Sconce path was a quagmire and is seen as a priority for the Friends to tackle.

The path from the white house is a very popular route to the Aire Valley Scout camp. Improving the path will greatly aid access to the public and keep walkers off the busy main road, which is very dangerous.
