When we began the flight of rustic steps deep into the quillet in 2013, we used lengths of coppiced hazel for the horizontals and, ransacked our garages and garden sheds for pieces of scrap wood to use as the retaining stakes. For subsequent work we’ve used properly treated timber. To be honest, we’ve been surprised by how long those first steps have lasted; perhaps because it’s quite dry under the trees. However, some have now started to disintegrate badly and have become dangerous, so our recent work party on 24th November concentrated on fixing those in particularly bad repair. This work will continue at our next scheduled work party on Sunday 26th January (meet at 10.00 in Chapel awn Village hall car park). Do join us: coffee and cake provided.
