Laying more tracks

Posted on Sunday, October 31st, 2010

Anyone who has ever visited the Bustard Site, especially in winter, will attest that one thing we have plenty of is mud. In fact the last six years has been something of a continuous battle with mud. However, yesterday’s work party took one more giant step towards winning the war.

Volunteer Len Tryhorn,  managed to source enough old railway sleepers to create some decking outside the GBG’s visitor reception earlier this year. This decking has dramatically reduced the amount of mud walked into the reception and the GBG office. Yesterday a team of volunteers joined Len to help lay more sleepers but this time for the GBG vehicles to park on rather than slipping around in the mud and forming ruts in the parking area.
