The atmospheric views on the Hadrian's Wall Path

Today's grassland management

10th August 2015

The great thing about grass is that it wants to grow.  It keeps coming back and is one of the most sustainable of surfaces; it is pleasing to walk on and by maintaining a green sward path we can ensure that any archaeology underfoot remains protected.  This happy state of affairs, however, comes at a cost and this summer and our two field staff, Gary and Andy, are constantly at work undertaking proactive grassland management.  I know that you care about the Trail so please help us with our fund raising ideas, for example, I will very shortly announce a grand raffle of Trail signpost fingers - watch this blog and our Twitter page @nationaltrailuk

In these before and after pictures taken today in east Northumberland, close to the site of milecastle 19, you can see the difference that Gary and Andy have made.

Thanks for now,
