NJ 43495 03575 The well culverts which run from the wells to the adjacent burn were excavated and recorded during June–October 2008. Blockages were cleared from the culverts and they were relined to minimise the risk of future blockage before being rebuilt. A new path surface following the line of the original path and using similar materials to the original has been restored, as has the well stonework. A bridge in the style of the 1912 bridge and meeting modern Health and Safety and planning requirements has been built across the burn. A leaflet has been designed to accompany the project, and a path from the nearby village has been signposted and waymarkers installed along the route.
