Repairing the riverside path

Last week we were working with a contractor to begin clearing the landslide that has closed the popular riverside walk for over a year. Gibside's built on a valley side which is doing its very best to fall into the river Derwent and this repair project is part of our on-going effort to keep the riverside walk open.

The project has taken so long to get to this stage as we have worked with engineers to make sure the area is safe and that we can repair the collapse without putting anyone at risk. In the next few weeks volunteers will work with walling contractors to re-build the wall and then repair the footpath. All being well we should have the route opened again by the end of October, which will let everyone once again enjoy the riverside walk.
