August Achievements (continued)

On 20-Aug-2014 we started replacing 10 Stiles with K/gs, on ACW route just south of Bubbenhall near Broomhill Farm. and on Circular Walk 7A.

We had the best turnout this year, with 12 workers and others supporting present!  The 2 k/g by the track were easy to dig, but also involved installing a cable on each for the farmer to use when re-establishing the electric fences.  Site 1 k/g proved a bit harder, but had a super-sized team to get it completed!

Nick came, but bringing his Father to work, while Nick did some path clearance further along ACW in both directions.

Another dry and sunny day made working a pleasure.  All tasks completed by c.12:30.  Some of us then yet again went to the Malt Shovel and enjoyed a good lunch.

Plans

We have planned two WP during September, one to make a start on further tasks on Corley Moor area which is about to be possible, and needs reasonably dry weather, and a another WP to replace more stiles with K/gs on ACW route just south of Bubbenhall, near Broomhill Farm.  Dates still to be finally confirmed - they may be swapped, but the plans below are now the most likely.
