Right now is the perfect time for getting out in our parks. Winter sogginess is drying out, undergrowth is still well down, visibility is perfect. Here’s Bramhall Hall looking great.
Everywhere you look, green stuff is arriving at pace. Here’s some greenery in Bramhall Park.
No idea what this is about – tree with lots of dangling tapes in several colours. Little jobs knocked off at Clifton, Blackleach and Bramhall.
Yesterday Queens Park Bolton, today Bramhall Park … a select crew have been working on promotional and instructional videos sponsored by Sport England. Director and actors in bottom right.
Yesterday Gorse Hall. Today, Reddish Vale, Dove Stone (photo), Nuttall Park, Blackleach. Tomorrow Chorlton Water Park, Bramhall, Bruntwood.
A mystery benefactor has been gardening round some posts, and the broken post D is now perched halfway up a tree !
Undergrowth is just getting started at Bramhall Park. A few posts will soon become hard to see.
Missing posts L, H, N, X replaced at Bramhall, avoiding the under-water bits. The red bucket is sitting next to the new site for N.
A drizzly day of maintenance jobs … post T restored at Wythenshawe (photo); post K restored at Bramhall and the new path along the West edge added to the map.
Contrasting degrees of difficulty – Wythenshawe is solid clay after a couple of inches of soil; Bramhall is very sandy all the way down.
