Make sure you put in edging before laying paths. You will need boards with stakes well into the ground otherwise everything will spread as you compact it. If you can do anything about the wet bits first, it will stop the path sinking into them.

I am not sure I would go with advise from the Woodlands Trust. They have made some big blunders in the past. Try a local woodland charity, and maybe take advise from several people. If you have a local agricultural college, they may be able to arrange for their students to do the actual planting as a practical lesson. I know son went out on a few; one in an iron panned very wet site. The lecturer hosed them down afterwards as they were such a state, but he still came home covered in mud.

Excellent idea, there is a local agricultural college, we will approach then!
