Summer Path Clearance

Summer Path Maintenance Work

With summer now in full swing, much of our work at the Steel Valley Project has been focused on cutting back overgrown paths and bridleways around Stocksbridge, Deepcar and Bradfield.

This type of work is vital for keeping paths open and ensuring that people can have safe access to enjoy the many natural spaces in the local area.

It’s also a great way to continue developing the practical skills of our volunteer team and, where appropriate, provide opportunities for certificated training.  During June, we provided strimmer training (delivered by Morton Training) for 5 volunteers and 1 apprentice to help us carry out the ongoing work on public rights of way.

Path management work normally involves strimming, mowing and branch pruning works using hand tools and power tools. However, it can sometimes also involve dry stone wall repairs, fencing and tree felling.
