With massive thanks to Open Country the path from the War Memorial to Harlow Moor Road has been resurfaced. Works took the best part of 3 days but the result are very impressive with new gravel being added and compacted.
We will review the need for any additional works after the winter.
As part of planned repairs the middle path from the War Memorial to Harlow Moor Road will be closed from Tue 7th Aug to Fri 10th Aug. This will allow for areas of the path to be cleared and any major holes filled with chipped stone. This work is urgently needed and best done in dry weather that we fortunately have had recently. This will mean that the Woodland Fairy Door Walk will become more if a linear walk for these 4 days but should be back open for this weekend.
We are pleased to confirm that a new management plan for the Pinewoods has now been published by Harrogate Council. The plan covers the next 10 years, from 2018 to 2028. The plan covers the 10 areas of the Pinewoods and outlines maintenance plans for each section.
