Next WPPrevious WP ACWA Working Party

On 21-Aug-2013 a WP carried out path clearance and Way Mark Post improvements in Hollyhurst Farm area.

  xxxx : 21-Aug-2013
New WMP added just west of Hollyhurst Farm area : 21-Aug-2013

August Achievements

On 21-Aug-2013 a WP carried out Way Mark Post improvements by adding two new WMP and improving three others in Hollyhurst Farm area.  All are "ACW only" posts. needed to clarify ACW route using permissive paths created as part of the Hollyhurst Football area constructed under planning permission from Nuneaton & Bedworth council early this Century, and now nearing completion.

xxxx : 21-Aug-2013
Improved "behind the wooded hills" path on SW edge of Hollyhurst Farm area: 21-Aug-2013

The path clearing we did was mainly through the wood just west of Hollyhurst Farm area.  The "behind the wooded hills" path had been cleared and widened by the farmers heavy equipment in order to achieve the minimum 2 metre footpath required under the planning requirements, but has actually been made more like 4 metres wide to allow the mechanical hedge trimmer to keep the hedges and trees at each side well clear of the path.  The farmer will also be finishing the SE end of this path by installing a culvert pipe and raising the surface to avoid the current steep path and ensure drainage good.  We will return to do any hand finishing later.

The day was warm & sunny.  All was completed by about 11:45pm.  Over half of us got to "The Greyhound Inn" at Sutton Stop for another very welcome lunch sitting by the canal.
