Milesmere Woodland Path – Year Four

Spreading the new chippings starting at the western end

TMAEG’s events programme for 2015 has been as full as ever, with a combination of brand new and familiar projects where the emphasis is on keeping good what we have started.  Typical of the latter brand is the Milesmere Woodland Path which runs from the northern end of Milesmere to the ‘green ride’ beyond which is Watling Street.  This simple wood chip path with its log margins has become a popular walking route and part of a circuit for local people.

So on the last Saturday of February a team of eleven people gave the path a coat of new chippings supplied by one of the Council’s contractors.  We also cut back the encroaching brambles and other vegetation and, as can be seen from the photographs, the effect is striking.  Looking ahead to Year  Five we hope to establish more spring bulbs and other wildflowers in an opening alongside the path.
