On 17-Apr-2013 a WP installed 2 k/gs on Circular Walk 20, just
north of the Fillongley Road, Meriden bridge over the A45.
Site 1 - the finished k/g & WMP : 17-Apr-2013
On 17-Apr-2013 a WP we replaced 2 old wooden stiles with 2 metal
k/gs on Circular Walk 20, just north of the Fillongley Road,
Meriden bridge over the A45.
Site 2 - the k/g nearing completion : 17-Apr-2013
Both sites were very easy to work, with the risk of finding roots
of the large Oak tree at site 1 turning out to be no problem, and
the only slight difficulty at Site 2 being a large sandstone rock
where one hole was needed but which could easily be dug all round
and the rock lifted out. This looked as though it might be
hard, as I saw Bob B diving right into the hole - but
before I could have my camera ready for an action shot Bob
reappeared with a great stone in his arms!
I and BobW had walked further north to remove a protruding nail
from the k/g on the Warwickshire border, and even before Phill
had arrived at the meeting place I had fixed the k/g near the
road by adjusting and tightening the hinge nuts. All the other
k/g we had installed on 15-Aug-2007 and 21-May-2008 were
checked with no problems to fix.
Today's work means that we now have a Stile Free Route
all the way from Meriden to Kinwalsey Lane.
Weather a bit warmer, and dry - maybe spring has come at
last! We finished by Noon and about half of us got to
"The Queen's Head" for an early but very welcome
