Next WPPrevious WP ACWA Working Party

On 12-Mar-2014 a WP installed two k/g on Circular Walk 3 & 3A, between Hodgetts Lane and Duggins Lane.

 First k/g near Duggins Lane nearing completion : 12-Mar-2014

March Achievements

On 12-Mar-2014 a WP installed two metal kissing gates on Circular Walk 3 & 3A.

The first k/g was near Duggins Lane, just after Walk 3 crosses the railway bridge.  The ground was hard digging with lots of stones and concrete to overcome, but the gate fitted the site very neatly with a gentle slope down from the railway bridge into to luscious parkland.

The second k/g was on Hodgetts Lane, was easier but plenty of stone and an electric Fence wire passing under the site to negotiate.

 Second k/g, with the hedge on the left : 12-Mar-2014

An interesting planned feature of this site is a proposal that the field to right of the path could become a "solar park" with 4000 solar panels!  The path would be returned to the more direct route close to the hedge on the left,  constructed to provide a wide track with a new hedge to the right screening the view of the solar panels. 

We used the step from the old stile to build a seat from where you can for now view the open grassland and ponder things maybe to come!

 Second k/g, with the field destined to become a solar park : 12-Mar-2014

A fine working day, finished off by a good lunch at The Bell Inn, Station Avenue.
