Rock survey work
The main road above the Watersmeet Valley has vast outcrops of geologically important rocks. These make the valley look spectacular, but they also need to be monitored to ensure they are safe. A major survey is done each year, but they are constantly assessed by us locally. Following the survey we may remove trees, topple rocks to a safe place or if the rocks are left in place they may be pinned or netted for stabilisation.
