On 18-Jan-2012 a Working Party installed a wooden bridle
gate at the site on Truggist Lane and a metal k/g at a
site in Spencers Lane.
The completed bridle gate at the site on
Truggist Lane : 18-Jan-2012
The first task was to install a wooden bridle gate at the site on
Truggist Lane, on the same site where we installed a very long
bridge on 20-Apr-2011. An awkward site to fit the gate,
but ingenuity led to a satisfactory solution. A sub-group from
this team also put a new Waymark post at a nearby site up the path
leading to walk.
k/g by Spencers Lane being installed : 18-Jan-2012
The second task was to install a metal k/g at a site
in Spencers Lane where a path leads to the stile and boardwalk we installed on ACW on
2-Sep-2009. The gate fitted in easily with ground soft for
digging the holes, but deciding the best position led to one hole
being dug three times! A sub group of two from this team
walked up to the boardwalk where excessive growth of grass and
hedgerow was trimmed back drastically, and a securing nail added to
firmly fix the Waymark post to the boardwalk support.

There will not be a full WP during February due to difficulties
of the LA to get permission in time from the farmers on the sites
being proposed. However we will have a very small WP before
the end of February to erect one WMP and add WM where needed on the
new C2K route over Kenilworth Common.
