ACWA Working Party

On 18-Apr-2007 a Working Party installed two new kissing gates on walk 17A.

The Kissing Gate leaving the B4115 to the west of Stoneleigh : Wednesday 21st Mar 2007
Our first "Users" : The Kissing Gate leaving the field: Wednesday 18th April 2007

April Achievements

On 18-Apr-2007 a Working Party installed two new kissing gates, at the entrance and exit to the "Shetland Ponies field", halfway between Sandy Lane and Wood End Lane on walk 17A. 

We also installed a new seat, made from the old step from the stile.  This is a delightful spot for a rest, being well away from any road, and with the two nearest lanes very quiet.

The day was sunny, but not too hot to work.  We were "helped" by a dozen or more of the herd of Shetland Ponies who often live in this field.  Note that they came to check our work, even before all the tools were cleared away (see the Telcoms Rabbiting Spade in above photo!)

Plans

The next session will be on:

Wednesday 16th May at 9:30 am to about 1:00 pm
Location:

Two stiles each side of Wood End Lane, East of Fillongley : Sites 11 & 12 on map (GR 293 869)

Meet at: Lay-by at junction of Sandy Lane and Green Lane (GR 289 874)
Task(s): To replace the next two stiles on walk 17A with metal k/gs.

Our plans for future working parties are to continue to place some effort in improving the remaining difficulties on the 40-mile walk, but to give more priority to creating further stile-free short (3 to 5 mile) circular walks.  Work on CWCW 17A started in February, and will take most of 2007.

Dates for rest of 2007 mostly on the third Wednesday in each month from Jan-Nov.  The expected dates are:

  • Wednesday 20 Jun
  • Wednesday 18 Jul
  • Wednesday 15 Aug
  • Wednesday 19 Sep
  • Wednesday 17 Oct
  • Wednesday 21 Nov
