2nd November 2021: Severe Weather Tests Our Drainage The story so far... See all Blog posts on Dam Mire Wood> Last week really tested our contractor Dan Boardley and colleague Andy due to the severe weather conditions Cumbria experienced. Springs and flows of rain water were appearing everywhere and it was also a really good test of how the French drains Dan has laid on the top side of the path worked. Despite all the rain, the path survived fairly intact. Work last week really focused on building the bridge and also on getting the new gate in at the entrance to the land. Andy has done a good job of building new ‘cheek ends’ at each end of the wall. This week work will focus on getting the ramps on each side of the bridge in, and also putting up the fencing on the top side of the path.
