Clearing Obstructions

PAROW is able to respond quickly to problems such as trees down – the picture shows clearance on Ludgvan 42, and logs neatly stacked to benefit wildlife. 

 New Stiles and Gates

  

PAROW has installed several stiles and gates, and other furniture, on the paths in Penwith This example is in Sennen. The examples below are in St Erth and St Levan.

 

  

 

Clearing Problem Paths

 

Clearance work done on Ludgvan 55.

Opening up paths to light helps dry them out and encourages Cornish Flora to flourish.

 

Pictures below show work on bridleway Paul 27. Regular cutting discourages re-growth of brambles and nettles – which are not welcomed by visitors in shorts!

Much ground clearing was necessary to enable easy efficient maintenance.

St Levan Bridleway 52 – Volunteer and Partnership Working

 This bridleway runs from some well used inland routes to link up with the South West Coast path near to Porthcurno in an area very popular with tourists. It had been completely blocked and impassable for over 30 years and was reopened by PAROW using a number of local volunteers. Sections of the clearance were carried out by the Ramblers Association, a school age work experience volunteer and a local man keen to see the route back in use. Following the installation of a gate and way marking by PAROW, the County Council became involved and did considerable work to improve the drainage and surface. PAROW continued with the ongoing maintenance until the route was handed back to the local Parish Council who now continues with its upkeep using a local contractor.

   

It was badly overgrown and had been impassable for years

 

 

Bridleway follows Cornish Hedge and starts to emerge as clearance is done with the help of a work experience volunteer. 

 

 

 

The same area one year on. The path is now well used by both walkers and riders. The County Council have also done some significant drainage work on the path and it is now looked after by St Levan Parish Council under the County Council’s LMP scheme,
