Recently the Fix the Fells team started evaluating paths with the help of their committed volunteers.  Above is Steve, the National Trust West Valleys Upland Footpath Team Supervisor, who is evaluting the path on the Helvellyn summit.

May from our team has been working with the Fix the Fells team and their path volunteers to develop an evaluation criteria for assessing their paths.  Working together they created a set of points against which they can go out and assess the paths.

We’ve been told that in this photo above you can see how the path on the righthand side was spreading outwards with no containment.

In the photo below, looking up the path to where Steve was evaluating, you can see the lefthand side has been recovered.
