ACWA Working Party
On 18-Mar-2009 a Working Party installed two new
kissing gate on Circular Walk 13 near Jasmine Cottage, Shilton.
First new k/g next to Jasmine Cottage, with the
second k/g visible across the field : 18-Mar-2009
On 18-Mar-2009 a Working Party installed two new kissing
gates beside field gates where Circular Walk 13 leaves Bulkington
Road, Shilton (GR 404 846 - near Jasmine Cottage).
The first k/g had to fit in the narrow space between the f/g and
the fence by the garage. This was achieved by using the fence
as half of the cage, the other half being a single curved
section bolted to a new half round fence post. An
excellent configuration, fitting this situation perfectly and easy
to walk through. We learned something new again, which I'm
sure we'll use at another site before long.
Excess supplies of fencing posts being
carried away from the Second k/g : 18-Mar-2009
The second k/g was fitted to the right of a new f/g (which has
replaced a hard to open or climb earlier gate in the ditch!).
The end result is that we can walk this route without the
challenges of opening two tricky f/gs, and the farmer can lock the
gates and increase the security of his stock.
No setbacks on this day, and weather perfect, soft digging
- it was another satisfying day, and with a team of 8
available we were finished by 12:30.
