ACWA Working Party
On 23-Jul-2006 the Working Party replaced two more stiles by kissing gates west of
the B4098 at Corley Ash.
The new k/g two fields
west of where ACW leaves B4098 at Corley Ash
: Sunday 23rd Jul 2006
We have installed kissing gates
to replace the third and fourth stiles west of the B4098 at Corley
Ash (stiles 6 & 7 on Map17
). By the gate 7 we have have also installed a new temporary
(but substantial) sleeper bridge, which with associated earthworks
we hope will eliminate another frequently muddy patch.
This bridge was constructed using beams recovered from the old
ruined barn which has recently been
demolished. If this solves the muddy patch problem, we will eventually
replace the beams with new treated
sleepers as used for gate 5 - if not we will
experiment further with more ditch improvements, then replace with new sleepers at
a higher level.

Installed on Tuesday 23rd Jul 2006
New or upgraded self closing springs have been retro
fitting to the remainder of the wooden gates on the
After Tea walk. For some we
bought new 8 inch springs, and for others adjusted the post and hinges to get gravity
to help more. I hope the overall result will be judged

will be given to features difficult for all, but over time we expect
this to include upgrading all stiles to kissing gates. Work is
also planned on some particularly difficult features of the 21
Circular Walks. More details later as our plans are
