A productive day last Thursday.

Sustrans has installed a new bench near the lineside hut between Ogbourne St Andrew and Ogbourne St George. We’ve cleared an area round it (and removed lots of nettle roots) and now planted it with local wildflower seeds. We’re not sure how the area is going to develop, and it may need help the nettles to avoid re-growing … but it’s a start.

And a lovely team from Network Rail cleared scrub from the slope leading up to the spot from the Ridgeway crossing, which is just to the north.

My thanks to everyone who helped: this helps turn the spot into a destination point.

Best wishes
