Working on Pen Y Fan building a drainage ditch

Gallery picture
Some 200,000 visitors a year use the footpath we're helping to maintain.

Gallery picture
First a ditch is dug and the front lined with dug in stones

Gallery picture
Then the base lined, again dug in so they hold fast

Gallery picture
The base of the ditch is spade width, so it can be easily cleared

Gallery picture
The base of the back wall is then dug out and lined to wedge the base in place

Gallery picture
Gaps are filled with stones and soil, all tanped in

Gallery picture
A finished section. Turf added for additional support and prevent erosion

Happy volunteers a new section of drain complete
