THESE North Devon College outdoor adventure students have been working alongside the National Trust to help rebuild North Devon's coastal paths.The students are in their first year of the BTEC National Diploma in Outdoor Adventure and, as part of an assignment, approached the National Trust to offer help in re-building some of the worst of the coastal paths in the Bull Point and Mortehoe area. They learned how to repair the paths with the help of National Trust wardens. The students did so well that they finished early and the wardens were more than happy to keep them occupied with gorse burning for the rest of their time!Jemma Lowen, warden for the National Trust, said: "The National Trust team here at Morte regularly work alongside volunteer groups and students from schools and colleges and we rely heavily on them for their enthusiasm and skills. With more than 2,500 acres of beautiful countryside and 13 miles of the South West Coast Path to care for, we have to! The new set of steps has made a huge difference to a steep and badly eroded section of the path.
