It seems fitting that the stone slabs used to form the floors of the large mills in the surrounding cities are returned to their original environment. These stone flags are airlifted onto site and literally ‘float’ over peaty or boggy ground.
This is probably the best technique for putting a path across deep peat, although it is quite expensive. This technique costs in the region of £50-80/m per linear metre (approx 700mm wide), mainly depending on the cost of getting materials to site.
