My plan was to develop the seldom used over flow car park at Clytha into a much more user friendly area. The first job was to remove the old barrier and replace with some much more functional gates.
These would allow the public to access the picnic area but restrict vehicle access. A local engineering firm made up the gates using an existing pair as a template.
The opening had to be enlarged to allow for the bigger gates and the new posts needed to be concreted in to carry the weight of them
Allan, one of my Volunteers, has made up some picnic tables which I’ve sited at the near end. The rest of the area I’ve left to grow wild to encourage more wildlife and wild flowers. My hope is this will become a great little spot to sit and have a picnic.
Finished and waiting for you.
Enjoying the flora and fauna as well as the local wildlife!
Have a look at our Clytha walks to build up that appetite.
Cheers, Simon – Area Ranger
