A walk on the “Dry side”

A board walk to alleviate the trudge through mud, in a section of woodland, at Black Plantation has begun.

Durham Wildlife Trust’s Heart of Durham Project volunteers have been getting very muddy as they embarked on a construction which will make walking a pleasure rather than a mud battle. The plastic planks used in the board walk are made from 100% recycled plastic products, like bottles, and are made locally in County Durham. Looking just like a stained wood this board walk will stand the test of time, will not rot or change colour, crucially save thousands of tonnes of plastic ending up in land fill but also keep visitors on the dry side.

The first two sections are down.

Look at the lovely mud!

Another section is added

Now nearly there, only one more section to go!!!!!
