ACWA Working Party

On 17-Jan-2007 the Working Party replaced the last two stiles on Walk 21A with kissing gates.  This means this Broad Ridge walk is now stile-free.

January Achievements

Two more stile replaced, AND one more seat installed.

The stiles replaced were the two each side of the paddock c.150m east of Berkeswell Road, Meriden.  These were very significant to us because not only were they the last two remaining on Walk 21A, they were the two most in need of replacing.

The seat is just beyond the second k/g - visit it, and sit down to enjoy the magnificent view!

Plans

The next session will be on:

Wednesday 21st February at 9:30 am to about 1:00 pm
Location: Stiles behind and opposite Rose Cottage, Sandy Lane, Fillongley
Meet at: Park in Lay-by next to or opposite Rose Cottage GR 293 874, and meet on path beside Rose Cottage
Task(s):
Replacing two stiles on walk 17A with k/g (probably?)

We have agreed 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 CWCW 17A will start in February, and take most of 2007.
