We will be up Kielder this Saturday 14th January and Sunday 22nd January to clear the route top to bottom.
Any volinteers would be greatly appreciatred. We will have a minibus and can pick up from carville Durham (just off A1), Birtly Services (A1) and Newcastle Airport. If you havent already confirmed with Carl via the Northern Downhill Facebook page. PM me on here and I will add you too the list making sure you cater for your refreshments and transport if required.
Jobs to do, will be brash trees and generally and clear the mulch from top to bottom.
Please come prepared to be out on the hill all day with warm clothing, boots, an old set of gloves etc. We do have some tools but if you bring your own loppers, rakes bowsaws, matocs, spades etc that would be a big help.
This will be your first chance to see and create one of the biggest tracks in the UK!
Sorry for the short notice hope to see you Saturday

Ok thanks to the hard work of the previous clearing parties the middle third is nearly complete and its looking good.
Top and bottom still to clear.
If anyone fancies joining us we will be up this Sunday, either pm me here or message Carl via facebook.
We should be able to sort out the usual pick ups at Carville and Washington Services etc.
