The ‘totem poles’ that will mark the main entrances to the Crags site are now with the Shedheads group for carving.

Aside from carved information for walkers, they will include carved patterns taken from the Bayeux Tapestry – the tapestry marking the Battle of Hatings of 1066.

The poles are of oak and as such are very heavy, and the best way of mounting them is now being considered.

Meanwhile, the main paths between Hillside Academy and the Ancient Wood are now being marked out in 100m intervals – in preparation for the distance markers to be placed.

These will give walkers an exact measure of the distance they have walked.
