ACWA Working Party
a Working Party installed three more new gates on walk 21 and 20 at Meriden.
K/G 1 : 17-Aug-2007
K/G 2 : 17-Aug-2007
K/G 3 : 17-Aug-2007
On 15-Aug-2007 a Working Party returned to
Meriden to replace the final stile on walk 21 with a
kissing gate (K/G 1 in above photo). We also replaced a nearby
stile just over the A45 bridge on walk 20 (K/G 2 in above
photo), and reinstalled the next kissing gate to the west (K/G 3 in above
photo) on walk 20 which was not opening or closing as it
should - now it works perfectly!
The day was very very wet. It started raining just as we
started work, and then apart from a few minutes of near dry and a
few seconds of sunshine, it rained, or poured, or thundered right
through to 1:00 pm when all three gates were finished. Bernard
then served cups of tea to the team members who stayed behind to
pack up the tools before the next storm!
The photos were taken two days later, by which time the mud was
drying out well.
The next session will be on:
Wednesday 19th Sep at 9:30 am to about 1:00
Near Barnacle Hall
Village Hall (GR 403 847), then take a maximum of 3 cars to site|
stiles with k/g (
GR 388 843 & GR 391 844)|
Both Above stiles are on ACW 40-mile route, and on
Circular Walks 14 and 15. One is also on Circular Walks
13. Tasks proposed for Oct-2007 and Nov-2007 will cover other tasks near
Our plans for future working parties are to continue to place some
effort in improving the remaining difficulties on the 40-mile walk
and other circular walks, but to give more priority to creating further
stile-free short (3 to 5 mile) circular walks. Work on CWCW
17A started in February, but will now not be complete till 2008.
Dates for rest of 2007 mostly on
the third Wednesday in each month from Jan-Nov. The expected
- Wednesday 17 Oct
- Wednesday 21 Nov
