Maintenance and Restoration

Some of the brick and flint walls are in need of repair and a small retaining wall needs to be built to prevent the access path to the cottages along Dinsdale Road from falling onto the track path.  Once built, fencing will need to be erected on top of it.  For this purpose, some ex-Garrett metal fencing has already been donated by the Long Shop Museum.  However, the fencing will need wire brushing and scraping to remove rust before being painted and erected.  The hedge itself needs the top cut out and general tidying up – another bonfire!  Levels will need to be taken along the track bed, to ensure we do not end up too high or too low at each end. The track bed will then need grading, which could mean the removal of several tons of top soil.
