ACWA Working Party
On 19-May-2010 a Working Party installed two new pedestrian
gates, one new sleeper bridge and 4 new Way Mark Posts on
or near ACW in Brinklow.
The path crossing the old Canal - p/g 1 at far end :
There were just six of us out this time and yet we managed to put
in four waymark posts, two pedestrian gates and a sleeper bridge,
all in time for a 1:30 finish and a meal down at the Raven. A
very satisfying mornings work.
The first p/g of the day completed the path crossing the old
canal (photo above showing the p/g installed in Jan-2010, with the
new p/g on the far side of canal).
The second p/g, with the Jan-2010 p/g in background :
The second p/g of the day completed the path from Butchers Close
to ACW (photo above). Note in the two photos above an
"emulation" of the fences and field gates the farmer is planning to
add soon. The farmer is also planning to add stones to raise
the level of the footpath crossing the old canal to create a good
dry surface. The ditch crossing half way to the Motte
& Bailey is going to be dug out, a drainage pipe put in, and
then filled again with stone.
The Sleeper Bridge : 19-May-2010
The new Sleeper Bridge is on Path R42 as it heads for the k/g
leading to the Ell Lane/Rugby Road junction.
WMP 2 : 19-May-2010
WMPs 3 & 4 :
The 1st WMP installed was by the 1st p/g. The
2nd WMP was by the junction of CW 12 and ACW, just south of the
entrance to the Bailey. The 3rd WMP was by the k/g at the end
of Barr Lane (where ACW leaves Brinklow heading West), and the 4th
across the field (about half way between the 3rd new WMP and the
tree to the left) on the photo above. It would seem that the
day also involved walking a fair distance.
