Next WPPrevious WP ACWA Working Party

On 16-Apr-2014 a WP installed two k/g on Circular Walk 3, between Cromwell Lane and Duggins Lane.

 First k/g near Cromwell Lane almost complete : 16-Apr-2014

April Achievements

The first k/g at Site 1 was near the end of the spur off Cromwell Lane where we could drive the "tool wagon", "NAAFI truck", etc.  This helped efficient working, but unfortunately the site for the new k/g involved digging lots of concrete and tree roots, and fitting the WMP by staples to the gate to avoid yet another hole through the roots.  The end result however looks good.

 Second k/g half way to Duggins Lane complete with stile : 16-Apr-2014

The second k/g was half way to Duggins Lane, involving walking and barrow to shift tools and k/g kit.  Digging post holes was easier that at site 1, but still involved lots of stones.  We also had to remove or bury a protruding other former metal gate post concreted firmly in the middle of the path.  But this took a lot less time than the Site 1 task, so we time to also use the step from the old stile to build a seat and enjoy the view before returning to Site 1 and help them finish.

We then returned to our cars parked at Peeping Tom pub and enjoy a good lunch.
