One of the CWA’s first projects was to install a 40m handrail on a slippery slope of the Cotswold Way near Weston, Bath. This has been so well used that walkers have eroded a gully which is getting washed out and slippery again. We are pleased to report that the CWA have funded re-surfacing on this section with the work being carried out by the Cotswold Wardens using EcoGrid and gravel.
We hope that this approach will be successful and that the approach can be used as an alternative to steps on other sections of our trails. Here is a detailed description of what was done – Note on surfacing of slippery paths
