On Saturday 17th March a group of young people from Pill resource centre near Bristol are coming to install a short, 10 metre long line of felted wool along the top edge of the scar. Depending on how energetic we all are I have nearly 100 wool sausages which I would also like to install to create a double ‘broken’ line at the very edge of the scar. The thinking behind this is that it would reduce the force of the water running onto the scar.
If you are planning to join us, please let me know so I can make sure there is enough tea and cake for our return!
It is imperative that you all know that whatever the weather it is always cold on the top! With current weather conditions it is also very exposed and therefore the sun can be dangerous. Please bring suitable clothing for all weather and wear appropriate footwear for a fairly steep walk on mostly grass but some stony ground. Also you will need to bring your own food and drink for a 4 hour outing. Please see the route map.
Hopefully the weather will be kind to us and we will have another exciting day with no mishaps. I have alerted the BBNPA wardens and mountain rescue as to our plans and carried out a risk assessment but ultimately it is up to everyone to be responsible so we can all have a happy and successful day.
Please let me know if you need more information.
