The site has now been cleared and most of it restored, although the track way still needs to be surfaced, it is hoped, with furnace cinder to replicate its orginal state.
Not much progress to report as the recent wet weather has prevented work on the site. Some restoration of the approaches to the kilns area is needed and the immediate area of the workings needs tidying up.
Most of the major work at East mines is now complete. The new trackway will be resurfaced by Wednesday and with luck and good weather the site will be re-instated by the weekend.
The trackway project is progressing well and the site foreman expects that the main works will be completed by next weekend, with restoration of the site continuing after that.
Work to consolidated the track way at the Stone Kilns site at East mines continues. No firm date has been given for completion, so keep watching this site for information.
Work on the repairing the track way is well on course. The new project manager, Tom Mutton, is now in post and is about to recruit the two final members of the five strong project team, which should be fully established early in the new year.
Work on restoring the trackway near the Stone Kilns at East Mines is progressing well. The slope has been graded and the gabions are being installed.

The Rosedale History Society sponsored a most successful coffee morning in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 1 October. There was a great turnout, including several visitors who wandered in by accident and then stayed to look around and take part in the raffle! A total of £305.80 was raised through donations, cake sales and the raffle.
Thanks to all who donated cakes and prizes for the raffle and to Dave Oakey and the team at the Coach House for their customary smooth and efficient running of the event.
The next coffee morning will be on Saturday 5 November in aid of the Rosedale WI.
The first phase of the This Exploited Land project has now started, after a delay due to more design work being required after the initial excavations on site. However, Hall Construction are now back working to restore the pathway by the Stone Kilns on East Mines .
Once all the old earth is removed, stone filled gabions will be placed and the track way rebuilt on top. More updates to come.
