ACWA Working Party
On 15-Sep-2010 a Working Party replaced or added 14 Way Mark
Posts on the ACW path crossing Kenilworth Golf Course, and replaced
the last stile with a k/g by the A46. On 29-Sep-2010 a small
WP installed a large metal k/g & massive s/b on Circular
Walk 1 east of Pickford Green.
Golfers by the 13th Tee : 15-Sep-2010
The main task was to improve the waymarking across the
Kenilworth Golf Course, ensuring all the waymarks are new and
firmly installed, with a few extra added to ensure navigation
of this route is accurate - and will remain so.
A pleasant spot to work, and get
absolutely vertical : 15-Sep-2010
The waymarks were placed in locations agreed by
both WCC and the Golf Course management, and we hope that no
walkers or WMP will get lost from now on!

The other task of the day was to replace the stile with a kissing
gate where ACW turns to cross the A46 near to Stoneleigh. This
now completes all improvements on ACW in this area, and means ACW is
stile-free from the Solihull border up to the series of stiles
between Tantara Lodge and Bubbenhall.
In all a satisfying mornings work, followed by a
return to the Cottage Inn for lunch.
The new k/g and massive sleeper
bridge : 15-Sep-2010
On 29-Sep-2010 a small Working Party installed a large
metal kissing gate & a massive sleeper bridge at
GR 277 813 on Circular Walk 1 east
of Pickford Green.
The kissing gate is a high accessibility one, and the
sleeper bridge uses 8 full size railway sleepers for the
deck, plus more for support.
This was the middle one of 5 old rickety wooden kissing
gates planned to be replaced over the next few months.
The next session planned is:
October 2010 at 9:30 am to about 1:00 pm|
||On the stretch of ACW between Old
Waste Lane and the Greenway|

An extra WP has been planned for 1-Dec, when we will
install a new kit-bridge across a stream just south of Dorridge on
the Warwickshire/Solihull boundary!
The expected 2010 dates remaining are therefore now:
Wednesday 20 Oct-2010
