A few of us turned up in the Sett Valley Trail car park this morning to meet with the National Trust Rangers. However, it was decided that, due to the rain and wind, the workday should be cancelled on health and safety grounds.
The field we would have been fencing in was water-logged with a stream of water running off it. We couldn't have got vehicles near the work area so would have had to carry all the tools and equipment to site, which would have been dangerous as it was more than likely that someone could have slipped. Unfortunately there wasn't an alternative indoor task that we could do.
It was such a shame as working at Hayfield is always a pleasure (particularly when the weather is nice!!).
We look forward to the next time............................
