Cairns - Removing the new to safeguard the old

21st September 2017

Prehistoric burial monuments or barrows, dating from the Bronze Age 3-4,000 years ago, are a very distinctive and relatively common feature of the North York Moors landscape. Their age and importance means they are nationally important and protected as Scheduled Monuments. Barrows are often situated on high ground with fine viewpoints and may be on well-used footpaths, particularly long distance routes like the Cleveland Way, where the modern practice of building walkers’ cairns can cause damage to the archaeology, putting it at risk.

Autumn Task along the Thames Path

Autumn Task along the Thames Path

20th September 2017

This week the weather was fine for the Trails Volunteer Task along the Thames Path near Eynsham, Oxfordshire. Local MP for Witney and West Oxfordshire, Robert Courts, came out and joined in with the task. The works included both light vegetation management and installing a new Thames Path sign post both made and installed by our volunteers. The scrub clearance works undertaken by our volunteers are crucial in maintaining and keeping the Thames Path open whilst good signage makes the route clear and enjoyable for walkers.
