The event was well attended despite the date clashing with England’s football quarter final game in the 2018 World Cup.

Offering cool drinks to thirsty path users proved a highly successful strategy to engaging them with the campaign to preserve the path.

The circular walk (integrated with activities such as a quiz and estimating the age of a giant oak) was well received so FoCW may well run similar activities in future events.
