This is a really cool way of reaching the point, and an interesting spot as well! I wonder, what were the willow trees used for, and why did this use stop in the 1960s? -- OtherJack (talk) 01:56, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Thanks! Willows were usually pollarded to grow withies, which were used for baskets, fences and tools. These have mostly been replaced by modern materials such as plastics. When's the last time you bought a traditional woven basket? :-) FelixTheCat (talk) 07:32, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
That's really interesting... there are no pollarded willows around here, even though presumably we needed withies as well. Anyway, cool spot and words. -- OtherJack (talk) 01:16, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
