Pilgrims passage repair
An impassable bridleway needed emergency attention in order for the annual Boxing Day pilgrimage, from Ripon Cathedral to Fountains Abbey to be able to take place.
Due to the heavy rainfall this year and the topography of the surrounding land meant that a 70m section of bridleway at Hell Wath, near Ripon, North Yorkshire had become impassable and needed the expertise of the DTMS Group.
DTMS Group was contracted to clear away the top layer of material and, raise the path in order to prevent further flooding and ensure a solid, sustainable bridleway for future years.
A short window of dry weather, a week before Christmas, gave the DTMS Group team two days to successfully complete the works, ready for the traditional 800 year old pilgrimage to take place.
