ACWA Working Party

On 17-Sep-2006 the Working Party replaced the first stile on Circular Walk 21 - The Broad Ridge, Meriden by a kissing gate.

September Achievements

We made a significant start on the next Stile-Free walks - Circular Walks 21 and 21A.  As well as replacing the first stile, we adjusted/re-installed all the sticking or not self-closing metal gates on the route covered by notes 6 and 7.

We have also surveyed the whole route, and identified the tasks required to complete the project.

Plans

The next Sunday session will be on:

Sunday 15th October at 9:30 am to about 1:00 pm
Location: Meriden
Meet at: Stile where path joins Fillongley Road (B4102) : GR 247 826
Task(s): Replace above stile with k/g, and if turnout allows to also replace the stile on the Berkeswell Road GR 244 816

We have reviewed our plans for future working parties.  We confirm we will continue to place some effort in improving the remaining difficulties on the 40-mile walk, but now will give more priority to creating further stile free short (3 to 5 mile) circular walks.  Work on the first (CWCW 21 & 21A) has started, and future plans are likely to include CWCW 17A and a 4 mile variation of CWCW 12 following the main route to Grimes Bridge, then following the Oxford Canal to Note 8, then main route back to Brinklow.

Date for the rest of 2006 is then as follows:

  • Sunday 19th November

Dates for 2007 will be announced soon.

Why not volunteer to join us whenever you can?
