VOLUNTEERS spent two days working to revitalise a rundown Bridle Stile Nature Trail in Mosborough.
The neglected area of land near Mosborough Primary School is in the process of being transformed from a ‘no-go zone’ into a place for people to enjoy.
Sheffield Landscape Trust has teamed up with the school, as well as volunteers and Scout groups, to create footpaths, remove trees and install new fencing and gates.
Karl Knight, a landscape planning officer at the trust, said: “We have limited funds so it’s a basic scheme but it’s about making it a safe area.
“Rather than it being a no-go zone people try to avoid, it’s about turning it around and making it a nice place for people to walk their dogs and explore.”
The project is being funded through £21,000 of money from developers, and the trust will continue to maintain the site once work is complete.
“It will be somewhere people can enjoy, rather than a scruffy piece of land no-one cares about,” Karl added.
