Easier going on popular reservoir path.

THE going has been made a little easier on a walking route popular with Teessiders.

Coniferous trees are being thinned on the path on the west side of Cod Beck reservoir near Osmotherley, which runs through a wood.

Yorkshire Water says the work will give the remaining trees more space to grow, and support the development of a diverse woodland. The thinning will also let more light through the tree canopy and on to the path, giving a better walking experience and views across the reservoir.

Long sections of the walking route have been improved, with a smoother surface and gentler slope. The felled trees will go into the timber trade and used for biomass energy.
