Springtime work at Pin Mill 

Work carries on all year round at Pin Mill. We have installed a new bench along the cliffs away from the houseboat area, where you can have a rest with lovely views across the river. We have been cutting back the gorse to make the footpath more accessible and have undertaken some fencing repairs. This is part of our rotational work.
