Plans are underway to clear a new path from the Eyam bottom landing to take off, John Cross and me cleared the bottom 1/4 yesterday so you can actually find the path... (It's off to the right up past the quarry, find the central wall between the 2 fields and you'll see it),,,, We will be asking for volunteers to help clear the rest on a non flyable day, so if you can come along let me know, and as soon as the weather plays ball I'll let you know the plan..... bow saw or secateurs will be useful, or just some muscle to get rid of the chopped stuff...
Thick gloves are a must !!
On completion we will ask to change the site guide to suit..
Maybe even build a cairn at the bottom so the optically challenged ( like me) can find the way out...
