The Hole in the Wall

Wednesday, December 12th 2012

Cut Sycamore logs from the last winter worky day were put to good use as path edging on sections of the woodland trail by the Tuesday team of volunteers. The logs were held in place by pegs that were made from narrow logs or stakes. John carefully prepared the points on each one required!

Edging the footpath

Pollarded Hawthorns made perfect vices to hold timber in place while it was sawn into smaller pieces!

Anne's vice!

The task was completed in no time at all and then the group headed into the willow carr to continue with the coppicing.

Tuesday Team

John from the DSWA came to assist students from the Dales School as they created a time capsule to go into the CPRE funded stone wall outside the Field Centre. The students all signed their names on a special piece of paper and sealed it in a waterproof container. John removed the right amount of stones from the completed structure for the capsule to fit.

Once the time capsule was in place the students were able to cover it up in the hopes that one day it may be rediscovered.

Finally, the top coping stones were replaced, hiding the capsule completely.

Thank you to John for having this lovely idea and for spending time to make it possible today.
