Kersal Dale is looking in a bit of a state after the winds of Storm Eleanor whipped through it at the start of the year.
Both wind and water damage have taken further toll on the area. A fallen tree has blocked the steps leading down towards the river and, in some places muddy banks have slipped away in parts as rain water has loosened the earth.
At the same time, existing issues have been made worse. The enormous hole which appeared in October 2017 has still not been repaired, part of the protective fence surrounding it having now fallen down. The water which runs down Radford Street and which has created deep gullets in the entrance to Kersal Dale has now eroded some of the steps leading down into the park completely, making for a wet and muddy walk.
Now that the flood-damaged boardwalks have been removed, Kersal Dale could benefit from investment and care, something which the Friends of Kersal Dale group continues to push for, working with Salford Council and other partners.
If you'd like to get involved too, meeting dates are here.

Has it been considered to turn over the site to an organisation that will help manage it?
