The story so far... See all Blog posts on Dam Mire Wood>

Five hard weeks of work in two minutes! Timelapse footage of the access work carried out by our brilliant contractor DB Contracts at Dam Mire Wood, Threlkeld between October 6th and November 9th 2021. They have done a superb job for us on a difficult site in tricky conditions as you'll see from the soggy footage!

We will be temporarily locking the access gate to allow the path surface to settle and bed down. At the moment it is really soft and whilst we want to encourage people to come and enjoy the land after all Dan’s hard work, we need to give the path a little longer to bed in to avoid potential damage to the surface. 

In the meantime, we will be working on plans for a grand public opening sometime in early spring 2022, so watch this space. We will also be doing some conservation work in the future, so if you would like to help us with that, please get in touch via our volunteering pages>
