On 15-Oct-2006 the Working Party replaced another stile on Circular Walk 21 - The Broad Ridge, Meriden, by a kissing gate.

October Achievements

We made progress on the next Stile-Free walks - Circular Walks 21 and 21A.  We replaced the stile where the path leaves Berkswell Road, Meriden with a kissing gate.

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

Plans

The next session will be on:

Wednesday 15th November at 9:30 am to about 1:00 pm
Location: Blind Lane and Hodgett's Lane
Meet at: Eastern end of Blind Lane, off Meriden Road, Berkeswell : GR 251 798
Task(s):

 
Replace stile at GR 251 798 with k/g, and a second stile off Hodgett's Lane (we will meet David Keaney at Blind Lane, and then half of us will follow David to exact location)

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.

Dates for 2007 will be announced soon, but are expected to be mostly on the third Wednesday in each month from Jan-Nov.  The first three will therefore probably be:

  • Wednesday 17 Jan
  • Wednesday 21 Feb
  • Wednesday 21 Mar
