A Swaledale path, at Healaugh, has been protected from erosion thanks to local volunteers.
Members of the Ragged Robin Conservation Group of volunteers used 30 tonnes of stone to build a 40-metre-long wall to protect the coast-to-coast path.
The work was done in conjunction with the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.
Ian Broadwith, Area Ranger for Swaledale and Arkengarthdale, said: “We were in imminent danger of losing the footpath to erosion by the river.”
Paths in this part of the dale provide excellent walks along both banks of the River Swale.
The work has also helped to protect the historic stone pitching on this section of riverbank. This provides a solid surface leading down to the river’s edge.
