Fosseway lane clearance

Over the 2017/18 winter months, we were asked by Wiltshire County Council to undertake three major clearances. With budgets ever tightening, local authorities are looking ever more often to volunteers to assist them. 

In the very far north of Wiltshire, my team and I saw our third and final lane clearance of the winter season draw to a close on the 11th February 2018, after clearing two other lanes near Buttermere and Avebury. This time the weather was kind to us – still a bitter wind though. The lane was cut back upwards as well to make it easier for equestrians to ride the section. As the nesting season kicks in, it won’t be until the Autumn before the next clearance project.

My thanks to all the volunteers that have given their time and pitched in whatever the weather!
