p10203911Another Great Team Effort

On Thursday twelve Whitchurch Walkers are Welcome volunteers finished the year by assisting the North Hampshire Access Team carry out essential repairs to the surface of the Harroway between Overton and Whitchurch.

 

 

p10203764The Harroway or ‘Old Way’ is one of the oldest tracks in Britain, pre-dating the Roman Invasion. Today it is a popular long distance byway for walkers, riders, cyclists and off road vehicles. However, general wear and tear and unfortunately the activities of some off road vehicles have resulted in surface damage and some sizeable potholes, a potential hazard for all users.

 

 

p10203721It was a damp misty day and there is still much to do in the New Year, but many hands make light work and the festive refreshments in the woods were very much appreciated.
