The Vat Run
The Vat Run is an abandoned woodland behind Port Edgar. It once formed part of the naval base there, and housed storage tanks, warehouses etc. Over the years, buildings collapsed or were taken down, and the area became completely overgrown.
We have been improving this space for the last few years. We removed unwanted trees (and planted more), cleared tonnes of rubbish, and built trails. Gradually we are turning the area into a recreation space which will benefit the whole community. We have built a pump track, various tracks, and we are looking forward to preparing a skills loop and some jumps. We also plan to install dual-use paths to encourage walkers.
